Harrowing rescue on Central Coast, as mother and three children are trapped in car in river
San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies say driver ignored road closed signs, but vehicle became stuck in river.
It was a harrowing experience for a mother and her three kids, as they were trapped in a car in a rain swollen Central Coast river.
It happened just after six Thursday night, in northern San Luis Obispo County. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies say a woman ignored a road closed sign on North River Road near San Miguel, and tried to cross the Estrella River.
The car became stuck in the floodwaters. The woman called for help.
A deputy waded through waist-deep water to rescue the three kids, and then returned to help get the mother safely to shore.
