Motorist Rescued By LFD After Getting Stuck In Deep Waters

VIDEO: A man was rescued by the Lakewood Fire Department Sunday evening after getting stuck in deep waters. Police were called at about 11:00 PM after two motorists driving on Brook Road, got stuck in deep waters. The pair from one of the vehicle managed to climb out of the vehicle, but the driver of the other vehicle got onto the roof of his vehicle waiting for help.

A General Alarm was hit out for the water rescue and multiple members of the The Lakewood Fire Department and EMS responded to the scene. Using their Brush Fire truck, the Fire Department got to the man and lifted him onto the truck to safety.

Their vehicles are being towed out out of the water.

The road, near the Howell border, is being closed off until the water drains. TLS-89, TLS-24 A/B, TLS-60.

  1. You know what the craziest thing is…is that the 2nd car drove in there while the 1st one was dead in the water. What were they thinking? Did they think the other vehicle just stopped for the heck of it. People like that have no common sense. Not only did they put their own lives at risk, but they put all of our first responders in unnecessary danger

  2. Great job LFD! but it’s terrible that you all had to go out and help these drivers who have NO common sense. And for the people on the roof don’t make the truck drive in to get you jump into water unless you can’t stand or swim which is highly doubtful.

  3. I am sorry I laughed…yes, this was serious situation…but seriously..

    1.Driving your car into deep water? Oh yes, you have 4 wheel drive, your car is invincible right?

    2. Standing on the roof after getting stuck in what is clearly only 3 feet of water?

    3. Calling for “water rescue” – i can imagine all the pros showing up in their scuba diving gear for this.

    I only jest and try to make light of this situation, but come on, I am sure others are thinking the same thing!

  4. this was no normal emergency. These drivers caused this . They need to be sent the bill. Attach there wages whatever we need to do,Lakewood should not have to bear this expense.

  5. Here’s an article about firefighters handling a similar call, read what happened to them.

    A member of the Princeton (NJ) First Aid and Rescue Squad is critical after attempting a water rescue in Princeton near the Johnson Park School this morning. A second member was also transported by EMS. This situation occurred during an attempted swift water rescue that took place in Princeton due to related weather from hurricane Irene.

    Look at our firefighters handling this call, what kind of personal safety equipment did they have with them? None what so ever. Look at how many firefighters were on that truck, 7 firefighters. It’s a miracle nobody got hurt on this call.

  6. #8—AS A FORMER LAKEWOOD FIREFIGHTER LET ME ENLIGHTEN YOU ON A FEW THINGS…THE REASON NOONE WAS WEARING TURN OUT GEAR WAS BECAUSE WHEN IT BECOMES SATURATED IT BECOMES EXTREMELY HEAVY, AND COULD POSSIBALLY CAUSE YOU TO NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE, SEVEN PERSONS ON A TRUCK THAT SIZE IS NOT UNCOMMON WHEN NOT IN A FIRE SITUATION. AND IF PEOPLE WOULD FOLLOW PAINFULLY SIMPLE DIRECTIONS OF NOT DRIVING THROUGH HIGH WATER THIS WOULD BE A NON-ISSUE.
