On April 21, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a women ended up driving her car from the parking lot all the way into the middle of the river. What caused her to do that? We don’t know, but with submission of the video clip, camera person had this to say in explanation.
“At around 4pm, a woman drove her car into the Schuylkill River from the parking lot of the Schuylkill River Trail. I took this video after I called 911, so I didn’t get an early video of the scene. The woman’s car was floating in the river when a man, who was driving by at the time, saw the car, stopped and jumped in to help her. Another man, who yelled ‘that is my wife’ jumped in too, while a third man swam a tire iron out to the car to help break the windows. A crew boat was nearby and came to help and threw life vests to the men. They pulled the woman out right as the car went under. The crew boat pulled her in and took her to shore. Thanks to a couple of good samaritans, she is still alive. The police arrived soon after.”
Thanks to the nobility of the three men and everyone else that helped save the women, she made it out alive save and sound. The only thing she lost was her SUV but at least she didn’t lose her life.
