MOSS POINT, Miss. (WALA) - A woman was pulled from the water after she drove her vehicle into the Pascagoula River early Sunday morning.
Officials say 32-year-old Shauna Kagan was driving on the small dirt roads of the Little River Marina in Moss Point, Miss. when she got lost and accidentally drover her Jeep in to the water.
Officials say she called for help as soon as she hit the water.
"She was in the car and dialed 911 for help, saying she was trapped in the car, couldn't get out, and it was submerged in the water at that time,” said Glen Montgomery, a firefighter with the Escatawpa Volunteer Fire Department.
Witnesses say shortly thereafter, a man saw the car sinking, and immediately jumped in to save her.
"There was a guy here, I'm not sure who he was, never seen him before, I heard he was a local firefighter, and he saw what was going on and pulled her out,” said Tina Gazzier who witnessed the even.
Officials tell FOX10 Kagan said she was staying at a motel a couple miles down the road, but they aren't sure where she was from or where she was trying to go when she got lost.
Her car was completely underwater when emergency vehicles arrived.
It took about three hours to pull the car out of the water.
FOX10 tried to contact Kagan Monday, but we were unable to get in touch.
