Passersby rescue children after icy river crash

Passersby rescue children after car crashes into icy Utah river; man shot out window with gun By The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' The Utah Highway Patrol says rescuers jumped into an icy river to help save two children after a car plunged down a 10-foot embankment and flipped over.

Patrol Lt. Steve Winward says one rescuer shot out the car's window with a handgun and cut a seat belt to help free the children Saturday afternoon. As many as 10 people jumped into the river and helped turn the car upright.

Forty-six-year-old Roger Andersen of Logan lost control driving northbound on U.S. 89 during slick conditions. His 9-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son were trapped along with a second 9-year-old girl.



Winward says the daughter and son were taken to a Salt Lake City hospital and were recovering from hypothermia on Sunday. The father and second girl escaped injury.
