It's unclear why Sulcer was on the road - whether she was trying to get home, or out of town - as she and her daughter were swept up in water rushing from a drainage canal, police said.
The water was so high, Riley said, that they required the help of a resident who allowed them to load the woman and the girl into his truck in order to reach the waiting ambulance, she said. The child was responsive but suffering from hypothermia; the mother was unresponsive and efforts to revive her failed.
Officers revealed the woman's young child was found clinging to her body when they discovered the pair.
"Two Beaumont Police Officers and two Beaumont Fire Rescue divers in a Zodiac boat spotted the mother floating with the small child", an official police statement read.
Authorities said they are not going to release the mother's and child's names until family members and friends are notified.
Beaumont officers responded to the scene about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday where the woman and her daughter had been carried about a half-mile downstream toward a railroad trestle.
First responders performed CPR until they could get her to an ambulance. "Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they had floated under it". Authorities said that the mother pulled into a parking lot, got out of the auto and grabbed her child. According to Riley, it was clear that the toddler survived because her mother prioritized her child's safety over hers.
Earlier in the week this image of a SWAT officer carrying a mother and her sleeping baby to safety went viral. The child was hospitalized in stable condition.
