Police: Men save woman who drove into Ohio lake with child


AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say two men jumped into a lake to save a woman and her 2-year-old daughter after the mother intentionally drove her car into the water.

Akron police say the woman was trying to kill herself and the girl, but the two men pulled both out to safety Monday afternoon.

The 24-year-old mother has been charged with attempted murder, endangering children and criminal damaging.

She’s being held in jail and is due in court Wednesday morning. Police say her daughter was treated at an Akron hospital.

Witnesses who saw the car go into the lake say it didn’t slow down before hitting the water.
