Give the officer some credit, folks. He did have a gun in case someone’s dog was nearby. A police officer stood by, chatting on his cellphone while the men rescued the 62-yr-old woman, who is now in critical condition. According to witnesses the woman was trapped in her vehicle for at least six minutes.
Update: Unfortunately, the woman is now dead. Sudsbury Star reports: “Two sources have confirmed to The Sudbury Star that the 62-year-old woman rescued from her sport utility vehicle after it left Municipal Road 80 on Thursday near McCrea Heights and plunged into a marsh has died.”
