DEBBIE ELLIOTT, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Debbie Elliott. Sheriff's Deputy William Hollingsworth was helping drivers during a heavy rainstorm in Pensacola, Fla., when he noticed a motorist disappear under the water. Hollingsworth rushed to his aid, but both men got sucked into a storm drain. It was captured on the deputy's body camera.
