With one on each arm, eyewitness video showed a Denver firefighter rescuing two children from flood waters Sunday evening.
The rescue was just one of several at this location along at a flood-prone underpass at 38th and Blake. The video showed a firefighter going into the floodwaters where a vehicle was nearly submerged and coming out with two children as people recorded cell phone video along the interstate.
Even as water continued to wash over the roadway people were seen attempting to drive through.
The Denver fire department reported eight people had to be rescued from this underpass.
There were no reported injuries.
The Denver Fire Department said authorities have rescued the most people Sunday evening at I-70 and York. In total, 11 people were rescued from the vehicles, said Lt. JD Chism, public information officer with the DFD. Currently, crews are diverting cars away from that area.
