The Ocean Shores Police Department says that a 37 year old Olympia woman was saved by one of its officers after the vehicle she was driving went off the roadway on SR 115 and landed upside down in water.
Upon arrival of officers, the vehicle was upside down with the passenger compartment submerged in the waist-deep water. Officers waded through the water to the vehicle to search for victims. Once there, Sergeant Vierra was able to break out a window and reach underwater and inside the vehicle. Feeling a person's head and hair, Sergeant Vierra grabbed on and pulled. While not able to fully extract the person, ultimately determined to be a 37-year-old woman from Olympia, Sergeant Vierra was able to pull her head clear of the water and hold her in that manner until further help arrived.
