Man saved from submerged car

Firemen rescue Belfast man Kevin Curran after his car was submerged

This is the dramatic moment a Belfast man was plucked to safety after his car became submerged when the Westlink underpass filled up with flood water.

Kevin Curran was rescued by firefighters at around 5pm on Saturday after becoming stranded in the rapidly-rising waters. Members of the Fire and Rescue service bravely waded chest-deep in the water to put a lifejacket around Kevin and bring him to safety
