Two rescued after car swept off road by a raging river

SHARE:

Cumbria Fire and Rescue were called out last night (15th Feb) to two people who had found themselves in an extremely dangerous situation when their car had been swept off the roadby flood water. 

A spokesperson said:

"The car had become wedged against a gate in a field, by a nearbyriver that had burst its banks near Newcastleton.

"Swift Water Rescue Technicians from Carlisle East, Carlisle West, and Dumfries, assisted by a water first responder crew from Longtown, waded into the water to set up a line rescue system to lower rescuers down to the casualties, and bring them back to the road to a waiting ambulance, just in the nick of time.

"This was excellent work by all crews, who are all returning back to station safety, while the casualties are transferred to hospital via ambulance."
