BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA – A good Samaritan helped save a woman from her sinking vehicle Wednesday morning after it slid into o holding pond in Bloomington, Minnesota.

The woman’s vehicle slid off a road and into a holding pond just after 8 AM on the ramp from Highway 169 to Interstate 494 in Bloomington, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis.

The woman smashed a window with a fire extinguisher in her vehicle. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the good Samaritan risked his life and walked out on to the very thin ice to help pull the woman from her rapidly sinking car. The woman was not injured in the crash but did have some minor injuries from crawling through the broken glass.

The Minnesota State Patrol cautioned that if you find yourself in a sinking vehicle, you should roll your windows down if possible. If you can’t open your windows, smash them with something from inside your vehicle like a flashlight.

It was mentioned that the head rest prongs in a vehicle are designed to be used as a window breaker.
