BOGOTA, N.J. (WCBS 880/AP) -- 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.
"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," the department wrote.
