Woman Rescued from Sinking Car in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. —A woman was rescued from her sinking car after driving into a retention pond overnight.

A good Samaritan and firefighters jumped into action and pulled the 33-year-old woman from the pond on John Young Parkway near Grand Central Parkway at 3:25 a.m.

According to authorities, a newspaper delivery person was behind the woman when the car went out of control and went into the pond.

The delivery person tried to rescue the woman, but was unable to get her out.

According to rescuers, the front seat of the car was completely submerged in the water, so the woman had to climb into the back seat to breathe.

Orlando Fire Department firefighters broke a window in the car and pulled the woman out.

Crews said two minutes after rescuing the woman, the car was submerged.

The woman was not hurt and did not want to go to the hospital, officials said. She told authorities she was on her way to work when the incident happened.

Her car, a four-door Dodge Avenger, was pulled out of the water.
