Rescuers jumped into action after discovering a pregnant woman clinging to a tree in rising North Carolina floodwaters in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

In video of the incident, her fiancé and one of their children are seen holding on to a branch to avoid being swept away.

The family, which included the pregnant woman who is eight months along, her fiance, their two kids ages 8 and 4, their uncle, 60, and a dog, were all rescued by volunteers from Wild Florida, an airboat tour company from the Orlando area.
