HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) — Henderson Central Dispatch says a man was rescued with the help of other local agencies Sunday afternoon near the Twin Bridges.
According to dispatch, the water rescue call came in around 1:44 p.m. Officials believe the man had gotten his car too far into a water behind the Sinclair gas station and had trouble getting out. The Henderson City Rescue Squad says the man was found in the water about 25 feet from the shore, in one of the sloughs, not in the Ohio River.
Dispatch says first-responders from Evansville and Newburgh were dispatched to the area to help. The man was successfully rescued nearly an hour later around 2:38 p.m., officials say.
Henderson Central Dispatch tells us the man was fine and did not need to be taken to the hospital after the incident.
