(PAYNE COUNTY, Okla.) Troopers rescued a woman after her car became partially submerged in an icy creek this week. It happened on Monday on State Highway 86 in Payne County. The air temperature was -8 degrees and the wind chill was -25. Due to the driver’s injuries, she was not able to get out of the car. Trooper Derek Fry #298 had to use a tow rope to get down to the car because of the icy, slick conditions. While standing in the water, Trooper Fry had the driver get up onto the window edge and then had her get on his back. Trooper Fry was able to keep the driver completely dry and out of the water. LT Ty Owen assisted both of them using the tow rope to get them up the embankment and to safety.
