GRANTSVILLE, Utah — The Utah Highway Patrol shared video Thursday of a daring rescue by troopers to save a woman in a partially-submerged car.

UHP Rescue January 2

Troopers responded on Jan. 2 to reports of an accident on Interstate 80 near Grantsville. When they arrived, they noticed the vehicle in 2 feet of water and a woman inside.

The troopers first attempted to rescue the woman by throwing a rope, but she was unable to grab it. Troopers then crawl across the ice to reach the car before tying a rope around the driver and pulling across.

The woman was transported to the hospital in serious condition.
