#DaringRescue
Saturday afternoon a lady was driving on Route 895 (about a half hour outside of Moncton) and she swerved to avoid a deer... her car ends up hitting a tree and stopping on the edge of a cliff... her car is dangling there... it's a 60 foot drop! Members of the Elgin, Petitcodiac, and Havelock Fire Departments rescued the lady... it was like a scene from a movie... the car dangling... more than a dozen crew members with ropes and cables... everyone knew that the car could fall into the gorge and everyone would be in big trouble... check out the Times & Transcript story...
