Man saved from drowning after car flips

Jan 27 2012

West Shore RCMP officers jumped into neck-deep water to save a man from drowning after his car flipped upside down into a watery ditch on Thursday.

The 33-year-old man was driving along Metchosin Road about 10: 45 a.m. when he lost control of his car on the slippery road and rolled into a ditch with about two metres of water, said Cpl.

Mike Holmes.

The red Ford Explorer ended up on its roof, trapping the man in the car as water flooded in.

A passerby called 911. Two constables were quickly on scene and jumped in the neck-deep water.

They pried open a back door of the car and pulled the man to safety.

The man was taken to hospital by B.C. Ambulance paramedics with undisclosed injuries.
