The Coast Guard rescued a mother and baby from South Carolina's deadly floods

South Carolina got pounded with rain this weekend. More than 20 inches drenched the state as Gov. Nikki Haley called it a once-in-a-millennium downpour.

There were many rooftop rescues over the weekend, such as this one. This mum and her baby were lucky to have been lifted up by the U.S. Coast Guard. The flooding led to six deaths throughout the state over the weekend.
