Woman rescued after car stalls in northwest side creek
Emergency crews responded to the northwest side Friday morning after a woman called 911, claiming her car stalled in a creek.
The incident occurred near 59th Street and Moller Road, near the Woods at Eagle Creek apartments.
In the woman’s call to authorities, she reported she was waist deep in the water.
When crews arrived, they were able to bring the woman to safety.
Fox59 spoke with the distraught woman, who said she did not understand why the gate to the creek was not closed.
The Pike Township Fire Department said they have responded to the area before and are not sure why the gate wasn’t closed as well.
The property manager at Aspen Chase apartments told Fox59 that Woods at Eagle Creeks apartments owns and controls the gates to the creek.
