WFAA reported that shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday community college students Ngac Do, 20, and her cousin, Nhi Tran, 21, were on their way home to Garland when they became trapped in their sinking Honda Civic after Do drove onto a boat ramp and directly into the frigid waters.

“At night, their lights don’t hit that water until it’s almost too late,” said Rockwall County Sheriff Harold Eavenson. “I could see how they could drive off in there.”

Rockwall County Deputy Keven Rowan spotted the partly-submerged vehicle while on patrol. He swam to the sinking sedan, shattered the rear passenger window, and pulled the two women out… moments before the car slipped beneath the surface.

“The water start coming in the car. It was scary,” Do said, adding she never saw the water until it surrounded the car. “It’s dangerous for people.”

“When I got to the car, they barely had any room to breathe in the vehicle,” the five-year deputy said.
