CAR SLIDES OFF ROAD

RIGHT INTO WATER
Sheffield Township Firefighters responded to a call of a car under water near Apples on North Ridge Road Sunday afternoon.

Assistant Chief Jim Gula of the Sheffield Township Fire Department said that the driver was leaving apples and attempted to make a right turn onto the access road heading out of the parking lot but his car just kept sliding. The car went off the road and into a drainage ditch that was full due to the recent rains. “He was sitting in his car when we arrived and the water was up inside of the vehicle but we believed it wasn’t really deep so our guys were able to just walk over to him and safely walk him out.”

The driver was checked out at the scene and took a few minutes warming up in the back of the ambulance but insisted he was ok and signed off at the scene.

I'm glad the water wasn't too deep and they were able to assist the motorist to safety relatively easy.
I can imagine the temperature of the water. I hope he is doing ok after the exposure.
Applause to the Firefighters for wading to his rescue. Patsy
