"I could see the top of his head and I could see a little bit of his back and the one leg," Spencer said.
Spencer pulled the man out of the water and started performing CPR.
"I kept telling him, you know, you're not going to do this. You're not going to die on me, but it was already too late," Spencer said.
Spencer does not know how the man got there because she said he did not live in the neighborhood.
"I have no idea because I mean it was blocked off," Spencer said.
Now that the water has started receding, people like Urban are pulling everything out.
"You gotta get everything out so we can get it done fast to stop the mold and bacteria stuff from starting to grow inside the walls," Urban said.
It was tough for him to see the damage because he was almost done repairing his home from last year's flooding.
"It's a horrible feeling having everything completely destroyed," Spencer said.
Manatee County emergency officials said several roads remained closed Monday due to the threat of more rain in the area. They said they are trying to prepare and urge people not to drive through flooding.
