Jaws of Life Rescue

ERIN (WENY) --  Emergency crews worked for nearly half an hour on Tuesday evening to rescue one woman from her car in the Town of Erin.

Witnesses say the car hydroplaned off Jackson Creek Road and slid into a pond.  Fire crews from Breesport and Erin and Chemung County Sheriff officers were on hand to get the driver unpinned from behind the steering wheel.

Authorities say she did suffer some cuts and bruises but remained conscious through the entire ordeal.   No other passengers were in the car.
