Two people survive after car plunges into pond in Hendersonville

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) – First responders work to rescue two people from a car after it crashed into a Hendersonville pond Friday night.

A car went off ramp at Center Point Road near State Route 386 before side-swiping another vehicle at a red light. The car went through a red light and hit the curb, sending the vehicle over the greenery into the pond at the Mantheven Apartments.

Crews went to the pond immediately after the crash, which found the vehicle with two people trapped inside. Officers broke the rear window of the vehicle and worked to get the victims out.

One of the victims, a 40-year-old woman, was restrained in her seat. The crew pulled the woman out of the vehicle by cutting her seat belt. When the woman was brought to the shore, she was out of breath and her pulse was also not working.

Officers performed CPR on the woman as they worked to remove the second victim, a 50-year-old male, from the vehicle. The man was pulled to shore and assisted. The female victim was taken to Hendersonville Hospital.

The male patient told staff that another person was still in the car, however after further investigation using sonar technology no one else was found.

The woman’s pulse has recovered after treatment at the hospital, but her condition remains critical. The male suffered non-serious injuries.

Several agencies were involved in the water rescue, including the Hendersonville Fire Department, Hendersonville Police Department, Sumter County EMS and the Nashville Fire Department.
