Bystanders brave lake to rescue driver, child

December 28, 2012

A woman says she struggled to hold her 5-year-old daughter above water before pushing her to a man who jumped into a frigid lake to help after their SVU left a suburban Indianapolis road. The incident happened just before 12:30 p.m. Thursday when 43-year-old Carrie Mattingly of McCordsville says she hit slush at 116th Street and Hoosier Road in Fishers. Her SUV went out of control and into an old quarry. Multiple bystanders jumped into the water to help rescue the pair. Mattingly and her daughter were taken to an area hospital as a precaution.
