It can be seen in the short clip that a private car was trapped in the flood, where a bride wearing a huge wedding dress is seen having climbed onto the roof of the car, awaiting rescue. A police officer climbed out of his jeep, which was parked beside the ensnared car, stood between both cars and helped the bride into his jeep.

The footage capturing the heroic rescue was uploaded to social media, where it went viral, garnering more than 150,000 views in less than a day. Users commended the officers for their compassion and the swift rescue.
