The man was driving his pickup on Wednesday when it stalled in the water on FM 187, according to the post.

The flooding occurred after a week of heavy storms hit Central Texas, bringing more than 10 inches of rain to parts of the region.

Several agencies stepped in to help, including Texas Game Wardens, Department of Public Safety Troopers and Border Patrol Agents.

“Our thoughts and prayers for the family, search team members, and law enforcement officers who helped in this matter,” the Uvalde County Sheriff’s post read.
