Water Rescue of Deputy (Ft Worth)

 From FWFD: A Tarrant County Sheriff’s Deputy was swept away by high water during an attempt to rescue a stranded motorist early this morning around 1:00 am. The deputy, together with a bystander, were trying to rescue a 70 year old female from rising flood waters in the 11600 block of Oak Grove Rd. Both rescuers were swept away as well as the vehicle. The Fort Worth Fire Department responded with two dive teams and six fire apparatus. Fire Department divers launched boats as firefighters searched the shorelines. Deputy Krystal Salazar was found clinging to a tree limb around 2:56 am and picked up by one of the FWFD dive boats. She was then transported via Medstar Ambulance to John Peter Smith hospital for evaluation.

The search for the female victim will resume once the flood waters have receded and the water current is safe enough for an underwater search.
