Authorities said they are not going to release the mother's and child's names until family members and friends are notified.
Showing signs of hypothermia, the child was treated in a local hospital where she is in stable condition. The storm made landfall for the final time around 4 a.m. Wednesday near Cameron, Louisiana. "The mother did the best she could to keep her child up over the water".
Two police officers and fire rescue officers used a rubber boat to reach the pair and managed to drag them onto the boat. Rescuers were able to pull them to safety before they went under a railroad trestle.
But unlike many others who have been able to flee from the devastating floodwaters, police said that the mother and daughter, who have not been publicly identified, were swept into a canal.
Police in the state issued a statement saying that the woman in Beaumont, east of Houston, had died trying to escape the floodwaters but had managed to get her daughter to safety, who was recovered by rescue teams.
The mother got out of the auto with the child and at some point the two were swept into the canal and drifted about a half mile from where the vehicle was stranded, Riley said. "Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they had floated under it".
Riley said that Sulcer's family is devastated by her death, but "counting their blessings when they can".
Rescuers performed CPR on the mother but could not revive her. Authorities said Tuesday that the mother died, adding to a mounting death toll that has reached at least 22 people. A bystander helped load the mother and daughter into his truck and transported them to a waiting ambulance.
A courageous mother saved her three-year-old daughter from drowning in the Texas floods - but sacrificed her own life in the process.
Emergency workers continued on Wednesday to rescue people as floodwaters continue to rise after six consecutive days of the tropical storm in southeast Texas.
