New Jersey Bride Trapped in Rising Floodwaters Recalls Rescue: 'I Was Terrified'

The bride and groom had to be saved by police.

A New Jersey bride and groom are opening up after they had to be rescued from floodwaters on their wedding day.

Bogota police arrived just in the nick of time to save Sabrina and Conner Riley Saturday, after sudden flooding trapped them in their car.

"We stalled, the engine turned off, the car was smoking and then the water started rising from the bottom," Sabrina told Inside Edition. "I was terrified."

The couple, who are now on their honeymoon in Jamaica, ended up having to climb out the sunroof to escape the floodwaters. Video captured the daring rescue, but maneuvering wasn't easy in a fitted mermaid-style gown, Sabrina said.

"I had to climb onto the center console with my heels still on, so you see me taking my heels off," the bride said of the now-viral video. "The whole bottom tulle [of the dress] was very wet and my shoes were kind of ruined." 

Fortunately, the pair's actual wedding and reception went off without a hitch.
