Firefighters in Mequon, Wisconsin helped two girls who were trapped in floodwaters Thursday.

The girls were trapped in their car while floodwaters on the road quickly rose.

According to the fire chief, the girls had driven around a high water sign and got stuck. Their car subsequently stalled.

Firefighters gave them a lifeboat to get on and pulled them to safety. The girls were given warm clothes and were sent into a waiting ambulance to be checked out. They are expected to be OK.

The fire chief reminds the public that high water signs are posted for a reason and should not be ignored.
