BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff deputies in Florida jumped into a canal to pull a woman out of her car where she was sinking after a crash.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post the elderly woman was trapped in her car, which was submerging into the water in a neighborhood in Boca Raton, Florida.

Two sheriff deputies got in the water and pulled the woman out.

Images of the incident shared by the sheriff’s office show a red car almost fully submerged with the front passenger door open and a woman sitting on the banks of the canal after the rescue. Officials did not say what caused the crash.
