Oromocto rescue

A New Brunswick fire chief says three people are lucky to be alive following a dramatic water rescue.

Jody Price of the Oromocto fire department says crews were called to Wilsey Road at around 1:30 Friday morning after a vehicle landed upside down in a ditch full of water.

Two people managed to get out of the vehicle, but firefighters had to rescue one person and two dogs trapped inside.

All three people were taken to hospital, and firefighters took the dogs to their home.
