Trooper Makes Cold Water Rescue

Trooper MacombTrooper Karl Macomb was recently dispatched to a crash on Interstate 4 that involved a driver who ran off the interstate into the water. It was bad enough that the midnight call came on one of the coldest nights of the year, but even worse that the vehicle was underwater in a retention pond.

Upon arrival, Trooper Macomb dove into the water and helped the occupants of the sinking car escape to safety. Luckily, the driver and passenger suffered very minor injuries and Trooper Macomb was able to get dry and warm up to complete the investigation.
