Lake Hartwell rescue


Hopewell firefighters along with the Anderson County Technical Rescue Team and Medshore Ambulance Service personnel work at the scene after a car ran into Lake Hartwell. The Chevrolet Camaro ran out of the cul-de-sac on Chase Water Drive, between two homes and into the lake. A resident saw the car go by and into the water. He flagged a boat down with three occupants on board and they managed to break a window out and pull the woman out. A child seat was also in the car but divers never located anyone else. The woman was rushed to Anderson Area Medical Center where she remains. Hopewell Fire Chief Andy Ginn asks if anyone knows who the boaters were to contact him at (Photo by David Rogers)
