Fear Factor saves a life

We joke about the stupidity of Fear Factor, but one of the show's stunts helped save a woman from drowning during a flash flood. The veteran corrections officer was caught in a flash flood in California and remembered a rerun of Fear Factor where contestants had to escape a submerged car. She knew how to roll down an automatic window instead of opening the doors. She credits the show with saving her life. And no she wasn't wearing a bathing suit.
