Just obtained video from a witness, Mesa resident Merrill Brimley, of firefighter/EMT making rescue of a woman who’s car went in a canal during storm in the northwest part of Mesa. Calculated risks are often taken to save lives. pic.twitter.com/VMg4Esukux— Mesa (Arizona) Fire & Medical Dept (@MesaFireDept) July 10, 2018
