DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Two people died Friday morning in Delray Beach after heavy rain and flooding hit Palm Beach County overnight.
A woman died after being pulled from a submerged car at Heritage Park Way.
At 7:50 a.m., emergency crews with Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to reports of a vehicle in a canal near the 5800 block of Heritage Park Way, which is near Atlantic Avenue and Via Flora.

Firefighters swam to the vehicle and attempted to gain entry but were unable due to the vehicle being submerged in about 15 to 20 feet of water.
Teams from both PBCFR and Delray Beach Fire Rescue responded with SCUBA divers and were able to remove the driver from the vehicle.
