Saxmundham: Two People Rescued From Car In River
Paramedics and fire crews have rescued two people from their water filled car in Saxmundham in Suffolk yesterday morning.
A man and a woman have been taken to hospital after the car they were travelling in ended up in a stream on Sunday.
The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) and Suffolk Fire and Rescue were alerted to Waitrose on the High Street in Saxmundam in Suffolk. Fire engines from Saxmundham and Princes Str, together with water incident vehicles from Princes Street and Lowestoft attended, as well as two ambulance crews and the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: "We believe the car collided with a wall and fell down several feet into a stream. When the ambulance crews arrived, the car was vertical in the water and the both occupants still inside the car."
Gary added: "The Saxmundam ambulance crew quickly entered the freezing water and began to remove the casualties to a place of safety as the water was entering the vehicle. Following treatment, stabilisation and immobilisation, both were taken to Ipswich General Hospital for further care."
