Though a rope appears to have been attached to the vehicle to save it from being washed away completely, the man inside remains trapped as the river continues to flow.

Thankfully, a passer-by enters the fray and managed to smash the SUV's side window with a rock, following up with the move by kicking through any remaining glass with his foot.
