A missing woman was discovered alive after a fisherman spotted her submerged Jeep in an East Texas lake, authorities said.
The fisherman saw the vehicle Friday morning near a boat ramp in Lake o’ the Pines, 70 miles northwest of Shreveport, Louisiana, and reported it to authorities, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
As deputies and a wrecker service were preparing to remove the vehicle from the water, they saw a woman inside it who was moving, the sheriff’s office said.
The woman, who was not publicly identified, was rescued and taken to a local hospital.
Images published by the sheriff’s office showed two men pulling someone out of the water and into a small boat. A small section of the Jeep’s roof is visible above the water.
Authorities later determined the woman had been reported missing by police in nearby Longview, Texas, the sheriff’s office said.
Additional details about the incident were not immediately available.
