Missouri man jumps into pond, saves 2 women

A Good Samaritan in southwest Missouri is being hailed as a hero for jumping into an icy pond to pull two young women from a submerged car.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the rescue happened about 8:20 a.m. Tuesday in Springfield. Donovan Hensley had just dropped off his wife at work when he saw skid marks leading into a pond and two women standing on a sinking vehicle.

He realized there was no time to call 911 and went into the water. He convinced the women to jump to him, one at a time. He helped both to shore, warmed them in his car, then drove them home. No one was hurt.

The driver, Amy Osborn, says she was trying to stop the car but it kept going.
