A 67-year-old woman survived Friday night partially submerged in the freezing temperatures of a Plymouth pond after her car went off the road.
The woman has not yet been identified by authorities, but KARE11-TV identified the woman as a Centerville woman who had been reported missing by her husband Friday night.
She had been on her way to an event at the Marriott Hotel in St. Louis Park, KARE reported.
The Star Tribune reported that the woman hit a patch of ice, lost control of her car and careened through a chain-link fence into a pond near 10th Avenue and Revere Lane in Plymouth.
WCCO-TV reported that a local bicyclist, Geoffrey Racette, discovered the overturned car when he was riding by Saturday morning.
Racette called police, who were able to extricate the woman within minutes of the call, the station said.
