A group of Fenland men helped to save a woman’s life by pulling her from a car that was sinking in a water-filled dyke at Christchurch.
Police were called to Poulter's Drove at 3.50pm yesterday (Thursday December 5) to reports that a car had left the road and was in a water-filled dyke.
The driver, a woman, was helped out of the car by members of the public. No injuries were reported and the vehicle was recovered.
The man's girlfriend said on Facebook: "So proud of Craig - he's saved a lady whose car was sinking in the Sixteen Foot in Christchurch.
"He pulled her from the car that was sinking; we hope she's well as Craig may have hurt her shoulder getting her out.
