CLARK COUNTY, Nev. (CNN/KTNV) – It’s a story of courage after runoff from Monday’s heavy rain swept away several cars in Clark County, Nev.

The men who risked their lives to save others are being hailed as heroes after rescuing an 81-year-old woman and her husband — visiting from Arizona.

She said even though all of their luggage was in the Prius that was washed away, she’s just happy she and her husband are OK.

Thankfully, the Nevada Highway Patrol said there were no injuries reported from the mudslide.
