[월드리포트] Driver drowning in river… The police jumped right in.

A red SUV that has fallen into the river is pulled up by a crane.

On the morning of the 15th, an SUV vehicle crossing a bridge in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, USA plunged into a river.

Officer Todd rushed to the scene upon receiving the report and jumped into the water without delay.

[마크 토드/미 케넷스퀘어시 경관 : 경찰 근무 장비를 벗고 물속으로 뛰어들었습니다. 어떤 경관이라도 그렇게 했을 겁니다. 차 뒷 유리창을 깼습니다.]

A 55-year-old female driver was trapped inside the vehicle, and Officer Todd broke the vehicle’s rear window with a portable vehicle inspection tool.

The car then began to sink rapidly as water poured into the broken window, and the water rose to under Officer Todd’s chin while pulling the driver in the back seat.

To make matters worse, the low water temperature blunted his senses, but after a persistent struggle, Officer Todd managed to rescue the driver.

[동료 경관 : 구조될 당시에 차 안에는 숨을 쉴 수 있는 에어포켓이 15cm 정도밖에 남아있지 않았습니다. 정말 기적이었습니다.]

At the time of the accident, the driver injured his leg and the like and is being treated at the hospital, but it is known that there is no life-threatening injury.

[마크 토드/미 케넷스퀘어시 경관 : 제가 경찰이 되기로 한 이유는 이런 사고의 순간에 다른 사람들을 돕기 위해서였습니다. 이런 일들이 경찰을 경찰답게 하는 일입니다.]
