To a dramatic rescue caught on camera. A driver crashing his truck into the water below. Other motorists not wasting a second to save him and pull him out. ABC's Linzie Janis has the story. It was a miracle. Reporter: A miracle captured in these nail-biting photographs. The man in the water on the left, a 26-year-old who just crashed through the guardrail on Louisiana's lake pontchartrain's causeway. I immediately slammed on my bre brakes. Reporter: Al pike was on his way to work and jumped into action stripping off his pants and shirt and jumping in. As I was jumping over the edge of the railing I noticed that the occupant of the vehicle, he had surfaced so I just jumped in and swam over to him. Kept screaming help me. I said, you're alive. I said that's the only thing that matters. Reporter: Then another life line from above. Other concerned drivers called police before taking matters into their own hands. Dropping a rope into the water and creating a human chain. I took the rope and I tied it around his torso. I was hoping mynott held. And it did. The driver seen here surrounded by those good samaritans on the road until emergency crews arrived. He was taken to the hospital for pain. His condition is unknown this morning. But his road to recovery no doubt smoother thanks to those humble heroes. Anybody would have done the same thing if they were in the same position. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Linzie Janis, ABC news, New York. A lot of good soul there is in the Louisiana. And I went to college not far from there. Traveled across that causeway many a time. At one point you cannot see the other side. That's how long -- Nice to see how many jumped in. Nobody hesitated. Nope, not for a second. Hey, ginger. Hey, there. Bride-to-be.
