Firefighters pull man from sinking car in dramatic marina rescue

Firefighters in Maryland rescued an elderly man after he drove his vehicle off a pier into the marina.

Dramatic footage of the incident was captured by a film crew that was, by chance, following the Susquehanna Hose Company, based in the city of Havre de Grace, over the weekend.

The rescue team - already donned in the appropriate gear - can be seen quickly jumping into action, smashing a window of the sinking car before pulling the driver to safety.

He was then loaded into an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
