UPDATED: Vehicle windscreen smashed to save a man in Burmarrad floods

LESA employees saved a man who was caught in flood waters at Burmarrad.

A video sent to tvm.com.mt shows the moment when a man was evacuated from a vehicle when a person went near the vehicle and smashed the windscreen to save him.

Over recent hours the Maltese Islands have been struck by great storms that have affected various arterial roads including Burmarrad and the Msida Valley with vehicles being swept away by the floods.

The Civil Protection Department and the Police are appealing to the public to remain in their own homes and avoid those zones badly affected by the storms.

Many roads became subject to traffic congestion and vehicles had to stop because of damages and traffic incidents. The Police and Civil Protection have had many requests to evacuate persons trapped in vehicles. LESA is advising all to remain cautious.
