Man Rescued in Kent After Driving Into the Housatonic, Police Say
I don't know about you, but this is one of my biggest fears, ever. Being trapped in a car, especially in the water. Horrific -- That's my word for it. Drowning is way up there in my bag full of fears. Plunging into the water in a car only ramps that fear up for me.
According to newstimes.com, Brian Zingwe from Massachusetts is safe after being rescued from his car that drove into the Housatonic River in Kent.
Police say the car driven by Zingwe went off Macedonia Road and into the water late Saturday night. He climbed from the car and waited on the vehicle's hood for rescuers to arrive. Thankfully, he was uninjured.
To say I would pee my pants is an understatement. I actually hold my breathe going over most bridges. Don't even get me started on how I get goose bumps just thinking about plummeting off to the water below. Add that to my list of being trapped, and fire, and I might as well just never get out of bed.
I don't quite suffer from aquaphobia, because in most ways I love the water, but I'm still holding my breathe when we hit the bridge.
