A Kentucky State Police trooper rescued a man and his daughter early Tuesday morning after they got stuck inside a vehicle in rising floodwaters.

Trooper Adam Childress arrived at 2:46 a.m. on Norwood Mount Zion Road in Pulaski County to find the man and his 3-year-old daughter in a vehicle that was “on the verge of being overtaken by strong floodwaters,” according to state police. Childress waded through the water, carried the child to safety and helped the father out of the water.

No one was injured, according state police said.
