March 5, 2019
NEW JERSEY — A Navy veteran sprang into action and rescued a woman after her car veered off a New Jersey highway on Monday and plunged into the cold water of the Passaic River.
Michael James, 37, was driving on Route 21 North around 9 a.m. when he saw what had happened. A 22-year-old woman's car hit the guardrail and went want it.
She managed to crawl out a back window and was perched on the car, but she couldn't swim.
" When the car went under, so did she," James said.
So he went into the frigid water after her.
"I just went, I didn't even think about it," he said.
