This is amazing. This lady is lucky to be alive.
A woman is extremely lucky to be alive after her car drove off a rock wall of a car park into a harbour and immediately began sinking at a frightening speed.
The petrified woman was squashed up against the rear window as the front end of the BMW was rapidly submerging into the Waitemata Harbour in Auckland at 3pm on Tuesday.
Fortunately witnesses called emergency services as quick-thinking policemen arrived and sprung straight into action by jumping into the water.
The officers and a bystander couldn’t open the doors so one officer attempted to smash the window with a baton with no luck.
Once it became clear that it was not going to penetrate through the glass another officer was handed a rock and managed to shatter the rear window.
The relieved woman was then pulled to safety by the two heroic policemen.
The two officers who saved the woman’s life – Paul Watts and Simon Russell – have described the dangerous rescue, and revealed they believe she could have been less than a minute away from drowning.
