Phillip and Emily Ocheltree were trapped in the auto with their children, a baby boy and a 2-year-old girl.

A family with two small children were trapped in rushing waters.

As the couple hurriedly worked to free their children from the vehicle, but to no avail, others pulled over to rescue the family trapped inside.

Her husband recalled hearing from inside the auto, "Voices talking to us and they were telling us they were doing everything they could".

"When I was working I was thinking about my grandson", he said.

He then came upon a terrifying scene: a pickup truck flipped over in rushing floodwaters near Myrtle Springs, Texas. She immediately called 911.

"I need some f****** help!" he screamed as he waded to shore with the infant in his arms. "Somebody help us! Please help us!'" He had been driving just north of Canton, Texas after storms and tornados had ripped through the area when he came upon the truck. "I see my daughter's lifeless body just sitting on the back of the truck, and you just don't know what to do".

The rushing water made it hard to open the vehicle's doors.

"The infant is white, going blueish gray", Tom Mitchell told WFAA. "Let him breathe, Lord, let him breathe", Howard prayed fervently. "In the name of Jesus, give him breath!" "Dear Jesus, please let this baby breathe". The update as of this moment is Marshal is in excellent condition and is full of life.

"The first prayer she said, I felt a response in that child", Mitchell told the ABC affiliate.

The baby is seen being lifted to safety but limp and blueish grey as CPR is performed on the toddler as the adults huddle round.

"She is breathing", Mitchell can be heard saying in the video. Finally, Addyson began breathing, although with difficulty. On Monday, 4-month-old Marshal was released.

Knowing he wasn't strong enough to help, Mitchell pulled out his cellphone and began filming the daring rescue.

Yesterday, WFAA-TV Channel 8 arranged for the Ocheltrees to meet one of their rescuers.

"You did such a good job in saving my babies", Emily said. "It's mind boggling that people were able to do that for us", he said.

We want to warn you, some of this video is hard to watch.
