An elderly woman found herself trapped in a small drainage ditch during a rainstorm Sunday afternoon, the Panama City News Herald reported.

She tried to drive her SUV over the grassy median in the Home Depot Parking lot on 23rd Street, but ended up in the flooded ditch, according to the News Herald. News Herald reporter Eryn Dion posted the video to the newspaper's Facebook page.

First responders saw the passenger side of the SUV tipped into ankle-deep water, the News Herald reported. They had to pull her out of car and into an ambulance. Officers on scene told the News Herald that the woman was fine and the SUV was removed a short time later.

Bay County is under a Flood Watch until 6 a.m. Monday morning since two to four inches of rain are expected to fall during this storm, though some areas may see as much as six inches, according to the News Herald.
