BOGOTA, N.J. — Police came to the rescue when heavy downpours flooded a street, trapping a bride, groom and their wedding party in a car.

It happened Saturday in Bogota as storms spread across northern New Jersey.

Video posted by police on Facebook shows the bride in her gown on the roof of the car, which had water midway up its grill. Police used a Humvee to make the rescue.

Officers posted that while the couple got off to a rough start, the department wished them a lifetime of "love and adventure."

 

Unfortunately due to the quickly rising flood waters, this bride, her new husband and wedding party friends, got a rough start on things. The fortunate thing, is we were able to help them through their first rough patch. Obviously their day has not gone as planned, so let’s congratulate them on their wedding and give them best wishes for a lifetime of love and adventure, starting now‼️🍾🥂 #boroughofbogota #bogotanj #bogotapolicedepartment #bogotapolicedept #bogotapolicenj #bogotapolice #bogotanjpolicedept #bogotanjpolicedepartment #bogotapd #BPD Daily Voice Bergen County CLIFFVIEWPILOT.COM News 12 New Jersey ABC7 CBS New York Law Officer Law Enforcement Today
