Susquehanna Hose Company Diver Rescues Driver After Crash Into River

HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (WJZ) -- As part of a weekend video shoot, a film crew was filming the Susquehanna Hose Company's Fire Rescue Boat and Dive Team when they saw a car drive off the parking lot into the Susquehanna River at Tydings Park.

The crews were setting up for a scenario when the incident happened. A rescue diver was able to immediately jump into the water and rescue the driver.

The driver was submerged with the car and seat-belted as well.

After a short time, the diver resurfaced with the driver. The patient was then loaded onto Marine 5 & evaluated by Havre De Grace Ambulance Corps, before being transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Trauma Center.
