Stranded Car Pushed to Safety by Firefighters

13/06/2011

Three men had to be pushed to safety by firefighters after their car became stuck in a fast flowing ford on Furnace Grange Road in Trescott.

Crews were alerted to the incident at around 7.55pm last night after the men had tried to get out of the car but found themselves trapped and so called the fire service for help.

One crew from Wombourne and a crew from a neighbouring fire service attended and the 10 firefighters managed to push the car to safety and rescue the men.

Crews left the scene at 8.40pm.
