Ohio truck driver pulls man out of sinking car

A truck driver loading milk came to the rescue of a man whose car plunged into a pond at a northwest Ohio dairy farm.

John Neumeier says he watched the car go into the water Monday night, called 911 and grabbed a big wrench. He tells the Lima News ( http://bit.ly/rXBNxw) that the car was in about 8 feet of water when he used the wrench to break its window and pull the driver out.

Authorities say the driver is in stable condition.

The accident happened near the village of Dupont in Putnam County.

Neumeier says the driver missed a curve near the farm and drove right into the pond. He says he normally doesn't work at the dairy until later at night, so the driver was fortunate.
