Two men were winched to safety from the roof of their four-wheel-drive in a dramatic outback rescue in the state’s flooded Mid West.

The pair had to take shelter on the roof of their Jeep when it became stuck and then submerged in floodwater near Meekatharra.

They were discovered on Thursday night by a search and rescue aircraft before being rescued this morning when a helicopter was sent to to airlift them to safety.

They were later taken to Meekatharra Hospital .
