Dramatic video shows cops form a human chain to rescue a family trapped in rising floodwaters in Texas

The cops came together to help a family of four stranded in their car as the flood rose. The video was caught on the bodycam of the Conroe police officers in the chain and released Tuesday. 

One of the cops went under as she struggled to get to the car as Tropical Storm Imelda struck the town of Conroe. When she came up, her flashlight illuminated the path for a little boy being passed to safety.

Thankfully, all the victims were rescued. Police said the incident was just one of many rescues cops made as the storm pounded the area.
