A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy dove into a lake to save a woman who drove off a bridge and was stuck in her sinking car. According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Beverly Toso, 76, was driving Saturday night in a construction zone on Interstate 94 and veered off the bridge, which is in the process of being replaced.
Her car landed in a channel of Lake Latoka and started sinking. Toso only had a few inches of air left in the car when deputy Ben Jarvi dove in with a rope tied around his waist and opened her car door to pull her out.
Kenneth Fletcher, who called 911 to report the situation, held the other end of the rope around the deputy and helped pull Toso and the deputy to shore.
