Oxfordshire firefighters rescue man from car stranded in floodwater

Firefighters in Oxfordshire were called to the scene of a dramatic rescue on Tuesday afternoon when a man became stranded in his car in floodwater.

The incident occurred on Main Street in the village of Burford, where heavy rain had caused the road to flood. The man attempted to drive through the water but quickly found himself stuck.

Firefighters from the Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service arrived on the scene and used specialist equipment to rescue the man from his car. The man was unharmed but shaken by the experience.

Speaking after the incident, a spokesperson for the fire service said: “We would like to remind drivers to never attempt to drive through floodwater. It can be much deeper than it looks and can be extremely dangerous. If you come across floodwater on the road, please turn around and find an alternative route.”

Fortunately, thanks to the quick actions of the firefighters, the man was safely rescued from his car and the incident ended without any injuries.
