A woman car driver, who was being swept away on a flooded road, was saved by a group of onlookers. 

The incident took place on the outskirts of Bangalore, India, on October 13 night.

Bangalore, like many parts of India, has been receiving record rain this year. 

The city was lashed by heavy downpour on October 13 evening, which flooded the roads. 

A group of onlookers noticed a car, which was dangerously stranded, on a flooded road on the outskirts of the city. 

The strong currents were pulling the car towards a huge drain which was sucking in and overflowing with water. 

In a video from the spot, the onlookers can be heard wondering if there was anyone inside. 

One of them notices that there is indeed a woman inside and raises an alarm. The group is initially reluctant to step into water as the current is too strong and the drain too close. 

But one of them plunges in prompting several others to follow. 

They approach the car, open its door, and come back with a woman - terrified but lucky to be saved at the nick of time.
