Elderly driver rescued from freezing pond in West Bloomfield Township
WEST BLOOMFILED TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A late-night drive could have turned deadly for a 93-year-old man behind the wheel of a Cadillac. “I looked out and there was this poor man screaming for help, that he was dying out there,” said witness Robin Reynolds. So really it’s a miracle that he’s OK,” said West Bloomfield Township Deputy Police Chief Curt Lawson. The officer took all of his gear, waded in the freezing water and carried the man to land. I think he was a little disoriented and that’s how he found himself within that pond,” Lawson said.
