MIRAMONTE - Around 1:30 pm on Tuesday, Fresno County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers received a call from a woman who said her neighbor was trapped in his pickup truck, which was submerged in water. FSO Deputies, members of Cal Fire, the California Highway Patrol and American Ambulance all responded to the scene located on the 43000 block of Brookside Road in Miramonte. The deputies and firefighters, who are part of their respective department’s boating units, are all swift water rescue certified.

Once on scene, rescuers found the pickup in the middle of Mill Creek, which is about 20 feet wide. The vehicle was stuck in approximately four feet of fast moving water, so FSO responders developed a plan with assisting agencies to try and get the victim safely out of his vehicle. A FSO deputy dressed in swift water rescue gear attached himself to a safety rope that was tethered to the shore and entered the water.
