SHREWBURY — Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to pull a driver from a car after the vehicle crashed into Jordan Pond on Saturday morning.
Around 4:28 AM, the fire department got a call that a vehicle crashed into the water with an occupant trapped inside. When firefighters arrived, they found that the car had flipped on its roof and was partially submerged in roughly four feet of water.
got into the cold water with rescue suits, attempting to pry open the door, but because of the victim’s positioning, they were unable to open the door. Rescue crews pulled the car from the water, and once it was on shore, they broke the driver’s side window to let the water stream out.
Using the Jaws of Life, crews pulled the driver through the door. The patient was removed from the vehicle approximately ten minutes Shrewsbury fire initially arrived. Worcester EMS began treatment on the scene and transported the victim to UMass Medical Center.
