Rescue crews were called after an elderly woman lost control of her car and drove into a golf course creek.
According to NBC affiliate WPXI in Pittsburgh, the 92-year-old woman thought her car was in park and accidentally hit the gas pedal.
Mary David went over an embankment and plunged 150 yards down a hill, straight into the creek.
“We were actually going to go in and try to get her, but she didn’t seem like she was injured so we let her go until the fire department got there,” Ed Moody, a golf course employee, told WPXI.
Authorities say the water was up to the window of the car, and rescue crews used a pontoon boat to get the woman to shore.
David was not seriously hurt.
