Woman OK after car breaks through frozen pond
WINDSOR, Colo. (AP) - A woman whose car overturned and slid into the water of an icy pond in Windsor is crediting a passer-by with helping get her to safety.
A car driven by 22-year-old Kimberly Garcia of Evans ended up upside-down in the pond off Colorado 257 near the entrance of the Kodak/Carestream campus Thursday evening. The passenger side of her car was submerged.
Garcia tells KUSA-TV in Denver she slipped through her car's back window, which was broken, so she could get some air. Meanwhile, a man who caught a glimpse of a wheel sticking up from the ice pulled over and entered knee-deep water to help get Garcia to dry land.
Garcia says that if the man hadn't come to help save her, she might not have made it.
