A woman had to be rescued after her vehicle got stuck in rushing water in Butler County Monday morning.

It happened at a "low-water crossing" area near Southeast 110th and Teter Road.

She was able to get out and to a safer place, but she was still in the water.

Rescuers were able to get her out of danger using a rope and life jacket.

The woman was taken to a hospital in Wichita to be checked out, but she is expected to be okay.
