Driver trapped under water survives in air bubble

Early Thursday morning, Roy Ortiz was driving to work when the world literally crumbled underneath his car.

He went nose first into the rising flood waters and was trapped fearing the worst.

“I’m completely stuck right there. So, I have to wait,” Ortiz said.

He could not get out of the car, but he did manage to find his way to the back seat where he found a small pocket for him to breathe.

“Only my head can fit right there in that space,” Ortiz said.
