DALLAS--This is the kind of action you expect from a rescue squad or police. But some Dallas city workers really stepped up Tuesday.

They crawled onto the bed of the pickup--while it was submerging. They secured the driver with a rope and pulled him to safety.

The whole incident was caught on camera.  (Warning: some language in the unedited video may not be appropriate for some viewers.)

Don't you feel better knowing these guys are out there keeping an eye out for anyone in trouble?
