A woman who had been reported missing in Texas was found alive in a vehicle that was submerged in a lake for two days, in what is being called a miraculous rescue. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has identified the woman who had been reported missing by the police department of Longview, Texas, on April 5.
The woman was discovered by a local fisherman who spotted a half-sunk vehicle near a boat ramp in Lake O’ the Pines, located 70 miles northwest of Shreveport, Louisiana, and immediately reported it to the authorities. The fisherman was unsure if there were any passengers inside the car, and local authorities were called to the scene.
Photos released by the sheriff’s office show two men pulling the woman out of the water and into a small boat, with part of the Jeep visible above the water. The woman was rescued safely and taken to a local hospital for treatment. According to reports, the rescued woman was reported to be in good health.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office reported that a recovery crew was able to pull the black Jeep out of the water after arriving at the scene. It was during the process of removing the vehicle from the water that authorities discovered that there was someone still inside the cabin of the Jeep. With the assistance of the wrecker service, fisherman, and Marion county deputies, the woman was safely rescued from the submerged Jeep.
The rescue has been described as incredible by many social media users who took to various platforms to express their amazement at the rescue. One commenter wrote, “God is working on this Good Friday”, referring to the day which is annually two days before Easter, when Christians commemorate Jesus’s crucifixion. Another user commented, “Glad the fisherman saw it. Hopefully all will go well”.
The woman’s current condition is unknown, but local paramedics treated her at the scene before she was taken to an area hospital for further treatment. The rescue of the missing Texas woman from the submerged Jeep is being hailed as a miracle, and the circumstances surrounding the incident are still being investigated.
