Ramsgate: Pregnant Woman Rescued

5 November 2016, 11:25

Firecrews have rescued a pregnant woman from a car that had reversed off the quay at Ramsgate harbour

Emergency crews were called to Military Road just before 6.30pm on Friday.

The woman - who is pregnant - was trapped inside the car, which was wedged between the jetty and a pontoon.

Fire crews secured the vehicle using a winch, which allowed them to get to the woman and remove her to safety.

They then hauled the car back on to the quayside.

The Coastguard and Kent Fire and Rescue's water safety unit were also deployed but were not required.
