GERMANTOWN, WI (WTAQ) - Two men had to be rescued from a flooded ditch in Germantown Wednesday, after their truck left the Highway 41-45 expressway during a heavy rainstorm.

Fire Chief Gary Weiss said the men could have drowned, had their vehicle landed upside down.

The rescue operation took about a half-hour to complete. Firefighters encountered chest high water in the ditch, so they used ladders to reach the vehicle and get the two victims to an ambulance.

Weiss said a number of bystanders stopped to help, including an orthopedic surgeon.

One of the men suffered a back injury, and was placed on a paramedic board. Officials say both are expected to survive.
