A group of men were the light at the end of a tunnel when they came across a family stuck in a flash flood during a tropical storm. The group of strangers teamed up to save a family close to drowning.

Hugh Lofting caught the rescue on camera as the family was trapped in rising waters in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Dan Di Gregorio and three other men, were able to rescue the family by making a human chain and holding onto each other. The four strangers saved a man, his two kids, his niece and his little brother from being swept away into the rushing currents.
