A bride facing an enormous amount of rain on her wedding day was rescued from a flooded car in New Jersey on Saturday. Police in Bogota say they rescued the just-married bride and groom after their vehicle became trapped by floodwaters at an intersection at around 6pm, Time reports. The bride managed to get out of the vehicle's sunroof and into a police Humvee without getting her dress or shoes wet. Police posted video of the rescue on Facebook, saying they were happy to help the couple through their "first rough patch." "We definitely get people stuck often, but it was her wedding day, so it was a dynamic situation," Sgt. Geoffrey Cole tells the North Jersey Record. "Nobody was worse for the wear, besides the vehicle." (More New Jersey stories.)
