Man rescued from large puddle by firefighters

Mays Hill, Westerleigh, Yate

A van driver has been rescued by firefighters after he drove into a large puddle, stalled his vehicle and was unable to restart the engine.

When crews arrived they found the man sitting on the top of his van, which was surrounded by approximately a foot of flood water.

Using slings and chains from Temple’s Rescue Tender, crews were able to tow the vehicle to safety. Fortunately no one was hurt.
