Divers from Gamber & Community Fire Company were called at 10:50 am on Wednesday morning to assist in the retrieval of an automobile from a farm pond in Gamber. The car had accidentally rolled down a long hill, unoccupied, and entered the pond.

The fire company dive team assisted the tow truck operator and the homeowners. One diver, Joseph Petrowicz, entered the water and hooked the tow line to the rear axle. Chief Charlie Green was the standby diver on the shore line. Other members assisted with land support during the operation and the medic unit staged on the property.

The car was successfully removed from the pond in about one hour.

Units: Dive Unit 13, Medic 139, LS 13.
