Cops pluck two from car in water
TWO police officers have been praised for their bravery after rescuing a woman and her threeyear-old daughter from freezing water after their car ended up on its side in a ditch.
The West Yorkshire traffic cops were the first on the scene after the car left a road in South Milford, North Yorkshire, and plunged into the water-filled ditch.
The pair jumped into the water in temperatures of minus three degrees to free the mother and her child.
They were taken to Leeds General Infirmary as a precaution but were not seriously hurt.
Acting Sergeant Mick Kilburn said: “This is reflective of the hard work and dedication that officers from West Yorkshire Police roads policing unit display on a daily basis.”
