Daring rescue during historic Colorado flood

Some officials are calling it a 500-year flood. So much rain fell on Colorado, a 20-foot wall of water surged down a mountain canyon near Boulder. Homes are collapsing, dams are threatened, and roads are washed away. That includes one road outside of Boulder, where rescuers risked their own lives to save a driver swept away by the fast moving flood. Ana Cabrera has the story.
Lieutenant Rob WIlliams of Colorado's North Metro Fire Rescue District helped with the daring rescue.
