On Wednesday morning, Longview, Texas, police received a report of a missing woman. Little did they know that two days later, she would be found alive in a black jeep submerged beneath Lake o’ the Pines.
The rescue mission was nothing short of miraculous. According to Capt. Chuck Rogers of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the jeep was first noticed by a fisherman near Woody’s Camp Boat Ramp. The fisherman stayed until the tow truck driver arrived, and the two men worked together to rescue the woman from inside the car.
The vehicle was eventually removed from the lake, but the length of time it had been in the water remains unknown. Regardless, law enforcement is treating this event as an accident and has yet to find any evidence to the contrary.
The woman had been missing for two full days before her discovery and was reported only hours before her rescue. The story of her recovery is amazing: an anonymous fisherman paired with a brave tow truck driver refusing to give up, pushing the human spirit to its limits, and making the impossible possible.
No additional information has been released at this time.
The woman remains unidentified and at an undisclosed hospital, but the fact that she has been found alive is cause for celebration.
The investigation into the missing woman and her mysterious car accident is ongoing, and the public awaits further updates.
