A couple in Norfolk were pulled to safety in a "Christmas miracle" after being trapped in a submerged car under freezing water for two hours.
Footage shared on BBC shows fire crews rushing to break the window of the car that is submerged in six feet of floodwater in Thorpe End near Norwich.
Eyewitnesses Matt and Alex Emmerson, 42 and 44, watch the rescue unfolded from their bathroom window on Christmas Day morning at around 10.44am.
One rescuer can be seen making his way towards the barely visible car and calls out to see if there are people trapped inside the car.
The firefighter could be heard shouting: "Guys I'm unsure, I don't know if there's anyone in here."
Matt, who had assumed the car would be empty, told BBC that they were shocked when two people were found inside.
He described the miracle rescue: "He managed to smash the window and he pulled a lady out.
"And he was sort of shouting, trying to get through to her because she was obviously in a real state of shock.
"'Is there anybody else in there?' It turns out there was! It must have been a close call because there just can't have been very much air pocket left in that car."
Alex recalled the rescuer shouted, "guys, get your gear on – get a message out".
She added: "I just felt awful and thank goodness they're okay."
The couple were taken to hospital for assessment according to the East of England Ambulance Service, but no further details were given.
Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said it had received more than 300 calls about flooding since Wednesday afternoon.
The Emmersons said the area of Thorpe End in Norfolk where they live often floods in heavy rain.
