The woman had been reported missing since 5 April but 2 days later a local fisher spotted a black Jeep almost completely underwater.
According to The Guardian, authorities of Longview city, Texas found a woman miraculously surviving in a car that was discovered submerged in a lake two days after she was reported missing.
The unnamed woman had been reported missing since 5 April by the police department of Longview, Texas, according to a statement from the local Marion county sheriff’s office.
On 7 April, a local fisher spotted a black Jeep almost completely submerged and called local authorities.
“He reported observing a black Jeep submerged about 40 feet from the Woody’s camp boat ramp,” the Marion county sheriff’s office’s statement said.
Pictures of the wreck posted by the Marion county sheriff office show only the roof of the Jeep visible.
Local authorities arrived to the scene with a recovery crew and managed to pull the Jeep out.
But while police were removing the car from the water, authorities noticed someone was inside and moving.
“With the assistance of the wrecker service, fisherman, and Marion county deputies, a female was safely rescued from the submerged Jeep,” wrote the sheriff’s office.
Authorities later determined that the woman found in the Jeep was the same woman who was reported missing.
Commenters took to social media to share how incredible the rescue was.
“Glad the fisherman saw it. Hopefully all will go well,” another user commented.
Local paramedics treated the woman at the scene before she was taken to an area hospital for further treatment in unknown condition.
