VIDEO: Orlando officers rescue woman who crashed into pond off I-4

Orlando police were able to rescue a woman from her submerged vehicle after she drove over an Interstate 4 on-ramp embankment and crashed into a retention pond.

On Sunday, August 6, Orlando Police Department officers responded to reports of a vehicle submerged in a retention pond near the on-ramp to I-4 East from State Road 408 East.

According to police, the woman, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, drove over the embankment while attempting to negotiate the on-ramp corner. As a result, her vehicle went down the embankment and entered a retention pond.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the vehicle was partially submerged and the driver was attempting to break the window out.

Four officers jumped into the water, broke out the window, and pulled the woman to safety just before the vehicle became fully submerged.

Officers standing on the shore with a rope were able to help pull everyone out safely with no serious injuries reported.

Last year, a man was killed after his vehicle fell from SR 408 onto I-4.
