A torrential rainstorm led to a courageous and tense rescue.

Rain pounded Ellicott City, Md. over the weekend, forcing a group of men to team up and form a human chain to free a woman trapped in her car. About a month's worth of rain fell on the town in just over two hours, creating a chaotic scene that you usually only see in a Hollywood blockbuster.

Eventually, the men managed to get the woman out of the car and bring her to safety. Two people died in the flooding. A state of emergency was declared in the wake of the storm.

You can see the actual rescue below, as well as clips of the flooding and people in the town surveying the unbelievable damage and aftermath.
