Police free woman from pig swarm

Police in northern Germany say they rescued a woman and her 2-year-old child whose car was swarmed _ by a herd of pigs.

Police said the woman called them Friday afternoon from outside the tiny village of Wanderup, near the Danish border. She said "20 relatively large hip-high pigs" had surrounded her VW Golf after she had driven off the road into a field.

She told them they had formed such a tight circle and were behaving so aggressively that she couldn't flee the car.

Police say they were able to free the woman and her child without incident.
