Florida deputy saves woman after car sinks in muck

— A Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputy rescued a woman who called 911 after she lost control of her car and landed in a canal.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera says the woman told the dispatcher her car was slowly sinking into the muck shortly before 8 a.m. Friday. She was unable to get out of the vehicle.

The Palm Beach Post reports the dispatcher lost contact with the woman, but she was able to call back.

Deputy Frank Mayo arrived at the scene and jumped into the muck. He got the woman out of the vehicle.

Barbera says the woman was taken to a hospital. The deputy was not injured.
