Footage shows the moment the unnamed Florida woman was pulled to safety by police deputies Nicholas Maletto and Patrick O’Melia on Saturday night in DeLand.
One cop even manages to save her purse after desperately calling to her to ‘climb out to the back’ of the vehicle; moments later the car is fully submerged. Volusia Sheriff’s Office posted the heart-stopping clip to Facebook.
The bodycam footage begins with an officer heading to the water’s edge. He calls out to the driver to move into the back of the car; she says ‘I’m trying’. ‘Door’s not opening. Oh my god. Oh my god,’ the driver tells the officers. A clip taken from above shows she is recused just before the car disappears.
