NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Stranded in the middle of flooded I-75 wasn't the morning Brandon Jenkins expected.
There he was, stuck on top of his semi truck that was loaded with 44,000 pounds of potatoes.
Brandon was headed to a produce market in Detroit when the stretch of southbound I-75 near I-69 turned into a lake.
That's when he took matter into his own hands.
"I just got up on top of the truck to stay dry," he said.
Help finally arrived, but the only way to get him down was by boat.
