TV reporter wades into floods to rescue man from his sinking car

A TV reporter who was covering the destructive flooding in Houston helped rescue a man who drove his car into a flooded underpass and appeared confused about what to do next.
In the incident captured on video Monday, KTRK reporter Steve Campion yells, "Dude, you've got to get out of the car!" The car begins to sink and the man appears baffled.
Eventually, the man opens the passenger door and crawls out into the water as the reporter yells: "Leave the car! Swim!"
The driver swims toward Campion, who wades out into the waist-deep water and extends his hand.
As the car slowly sinks under water, the driver tells Campion that he's OK, but didn't realize the water was so deep.
