Truck Hydroplanes Into River, Heroes Smash Windows To Rescue Children From Flash Flood.
It was just another day in Wills Point, TX when a severe thunderstorm sent Phillip Ocheltree speeding home. The storm system had already spawned dozens of tornados, and another was bearing down on their family home a few miles away. While driving towards his house, Ocheltree truck suddenly hydroplaned on a pool of standing water. The car with his children inside, turned upside down in the rushing flood water.
Passing motorists spotted Ocheltree’s truck disappearing beneath the water and rushed to rescue whomever they could. Inside, the rescuers saw Ocheltree, his baby son, Marshal, and little girl, Addyson, with their heads barely above the water.
