At 8:47 a.m. this morning, Charles County 911 center received calls advising two vehicles were swept from the roadway on Prince Frederick Road at Swanson Creek on the Charles/Prince George's County line. 49 members including our Special Operations Division, Dive/Rescue Team, and mutual aid resources from PGFD responded to the scene. Hughesville Chief 2 (Matt Herbert) arrived, established command and assigned Special Ops Chief 17 (Mills) the "Rescue Group". As fire/EMS resources arrived it was confirmed two persons were off the roadway one male on the roof of his vehicle and a female near her vehicle hanging onto a tree limb. In addition, rescuers from Waldorf Truck #12 made a rescue of a male subject that was making an attempt to rescue the two from their vehicles; the current was too strong for anyone to attempt any rescue on foot with no PFD or life saving equipment.(VIDEO ATTACHED) Air Boat #8 from the Tenth District VFD launched and made the successful rescues of the two occupants, both evaluated on scene, female transported to CRMC for check-up. All Fire and EMS units on scene for 3 hours, no other injuries reported.
