Dad of Girl Rescued by Strangers When Family Car Crashed Into Rising Floodwaters Reveals "Miracle" Recovery
Description
A two-year-old girl who was rescued by complete strangers when her family's car ploughed into rising floodwaters is making a "miracle" recovery.

Phillip Ocheltree was racing to get his children to safety when a tornado caused massive floods near their home in Texas.

But his pick-up truck overturned and baby Marshal and Addy, two, were left trapped inside the vehicle as it filled with floodwater.

Complete strangers armed with a sledgehammer were filmed wading into the fast-flowing water to save the children from otherwise certain death.

Now Addy, who was more seriously injured than her little brother, is making a "miracle" recovery, according to her dad who has shared updates on Facebook as she is treated in hospital.
