LAUDERHILL, Fla. – A blue car was finally pulled from a Lauderhill canal Tuesday, two days after its driver drove right into the water in the midst of awful rain and flooding from Tropical Storm Eta.
Nerosier Valcy, 55, remains in critical condition at Broward Health Medical Center, Lauderhill police say.
In the dark, it was likely impossible to tell where the pavement ended and the canal began.
Divers went in to rescue Valcy, freeing him from the car and pulling him from the water. They then went back in to make sure no one else was in the car.
According to family, Valcy is from Haiti and has a son. Word on social media among loved ones in Haiti is spreading. It’s scary news, after a frightening accident, and there is hope he will be OK.
