Miami-Dade firefighters rescued a woman from a sinking car on Thursday in Homestead.
A group of firefighters were on their way to pick up their dinner when they saw a car in a canal along Palm Drive and Southwest 167th Avenue.
When firefighters Paul Newton and Bill Warren saw a woman was in the driver’s seat of the submerging car, they jumped into the water and saved her.
“We had to get in and grab her quickly,” Newton said in a press release. “We didn’t even get a chance to put on our dive gear.”
Warren pulled the semi-conscious woman to shore, while Newton went back underwater to check if there were more victims inside.
Rescue transported the unidentified woman to Homestead Hospital and the Homestead Police Department was investigating the incident.
