HOPKINS, MI (WHTC) - Fire crews say it was a volunteer firefighter who happened to be in the right place at the right time who saved a 17-year-old's life yesterday. Martin High senior Allie Teed slid off an icy patch on 130th Avenue off of 18th Street, hit a guardrail and flipped over into the Rabbit River. Jim Bard saw the car submerged and the teen driver was able to unbuckle herself and find an air pocket in the car. He and Ed Wamhoff, who lived about a mile away when a pager went off to alert him to the matter, were able to force open a door and bring Teed out to safety. She was treated for mild hypothermia at the scene and was sent home without the need for hospitalization. However, Teed was cited by Allegan County Sheriff's Deputies for driving too fast for the road conditions.
