From Action 30 News! So Cool!!
Samantha Krikorian is being hailed a hero after helping rescue a man whose car drove into the pond at the Copper River Golf Course! She only spoke with Action News and says she was coming home from church when she saw taillights in the water. She called 911 before hopping the fence and swimming out to the car. When she got close, the driver was pounding on the car to get out. She tried several times to break the glass and when she could not she stayed with the man for about 10 minutes in the freezing water before firefighters arrived and pulled him out. "My first thought, when I saw the vehicle, I have a neighbor that has a similar looking car and she has children,". The man was transported to the hospital for treatment but is expected to be ok. Police are still investigating how the man lost control of his car.
