A man is breathing a sigh of relief after being rescued from a flooded road in the Northwest side.
His car stalled this morning on Babcock Road at Hollyhock Road and he couldn’t open the door.
“We were able to open the passenger door, put a life vest on him and walk him out of the water,” said Deborah Foster with the San Antonio Fire Department.
She says there were no barricades when the man drove into the flood intersection during the storms this morning, but if there had been, he could have faced a hefty fine.
“If you go around those barricades, it can be a $2,000 fine and 180 days in jail from SAPD,” she said. .
And if firefighters pull you out of the water, “those rescues will cost you $645 per person in the vehicle, but that does not equate to the cost of your life,” said Foster.
