A Florida A woman who was pulled from an SUV that overturned in a water-filled ditch has died three days after her heroic rescue.

Witnesses and officers in Volusia County rushed to the rescue of an unidentified woman who lost control of her SUV and drove off the road this afternoon, hitting a tree and flipping into water.

The video shows firefighters pulling an unconscious woman from the driver’s side of her water-filled Toyota Highlander. At the time of rescue, she still had a pulse.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition and died of her injuries early Friday evening.

Police say it is unclear what caused her to lose control of the vehicle.

Body cameras worn by deputies show the moment Volusia County sheriff’s deputies, firefighters and good Samaritans sprang into action to free a woman whose car had rolled into a ditch in Oak Hill, Fla., around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Bystanders can be seen standing next to the car in three feet of water, trying to push it upright, while a woman tells a sheriff’s deputy, “There’s a lady.” She is not responding.”

The deputy approaches the car and asks: “There is someone there. Can we turn this thing around or not?”

Then he turns to his colleagues, who are responding quickly, and adds: “Guys, someone has gone underwater. We need help pushing.”

Officials and good Samaritans work together to raise the car upright and open the driver’s side door.

The woman was trapped by the airbag, which deployed, and the seat belt.

“Hey, give me the knife,” the deputy yells. “Or scissors—something.”

A team of firefighters then pull the unresponsive woman out of the car and carry her through the murky water before loading her onto a gurney.

She was placed in an ambulance and rushed to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach for treatment. Authorities say life-saving efforts were made at the scene.

The woman was pronounced dead in hospital at around 5.30pm on Friday, police confirmed to DailyMail.com.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash.

Although the driver did not survive, officials applaud the efforts made to save her life.

“We’re not deciding what’s going to happen at the very end of this patient,” said Volusia County Rescue Battalion Chief Chris Davis VOFL TV, praising the crew and others. “But they gave this patient a fighting chance.”

“Seconds count, so you have to make quick decisions (and) don’t hesitate,” said firefighter Nick Current WFTV. “That’s what we did.”

“It was instinct, it was the first thing I could do to get in the water and do something to help,” Volusia County Deputy Doug Meyer echoed. He was one of the first officials to arrive at the scene.

“Their training started right away, so I have to give these guys credit for what they did,” Chief Davis said. “It’s just a heroic effort just to do what they did.”

Firefighter Robert Hamel added, “Fortunately, we had a great team of civilians, the sheriff’s office and firefighters working together on this.”
