GERMANTOWN, Wis. -Firefighters have rescued two men whose truck rolled into a flooded ditch in southeastern Wisconsin.

Germantown Fire Chief Gary Weiss says the men are lucky they didn't end up upside down, because they could have drowned.

The rollover happened Wednesday morning on Highway 41/45 as another round of storms passed through southern Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports it took firefighters about a half-hour to rescue the men. Firefighters had to deal with chest-high water in the ditch from heavy rainfall and crossed the ditch by laying ladders across the water to the truck.

Both men were hurt but are expected to survive.
