Body

Witnesses said an elderly couple was making a u-turn in front of the Gold’s Gym Plaza on Racine when their car jumped the curb and rolled into a retention pond.

Gym employees ran to help as the car quickly sank into the center of the pond. They jumped in and pulled the man and woman out of the passenger side window.

“It was crazy. It was just a full adrenaline rush from everyone,” said Stephanie Johnson of Gold’s Gym. “Everyone went out, and you really see people pull together in a situation like that. It was crazy.”

The couple was taken away in an ambulance to get checked out. Witnesses said they did not appear injured, just shaken up.

The car is still sitting in the center of the pond.
