Kerry Packer of Austin, Texas was rescued after his Boy Scout training kept him alive for four hours in a tree Friday.

But that’s not the weird part: After his car was swept away, he watched it sink after climbing a tree. Then did THIS:

Not only did he get video of his car being carried along in the flooding, but he amazingly escaped and lived to tell the tale… LIVE ON TV!!

Later, he was spotted helping an old lady across a flooded street. True story.
