MASCOUTAH, Ill. (KMOX) - A woman and three young children, all under the age of 5, had to be rescued after being trapped in their car this morning.

It occurred on Brickyard Lane just a couple miles south of Mascoutah, Illinois near Route 4. Rescuers used a firetruck, ropes and vests in the rescue.

Meanwhile, officials say it reinforces their theory of “don’t drown, turn around” and urge motorists to do exactly that when faced with flooded roads.
