Several agencies were called to help with a water rescue of two people in northern Bollinger County on Monday morning. Two people attempting to cross a floodwater-covered low-water bridge were trapped in their vehicle as it started to slide off the road. Battalion chief of the Cape Girardeau Fire Department, Mark Starnes says a team of five people from the department’s special operations team responded to the call on County Road 200, near Highway 51, north of Patton. They arrived on scene about 8:15 a.m. — nearly 45 minutes after the time of the initial call — and both occupants still were in the vehicle. Rescuers walked a boat to the vehicle, where the two occupants got on and were walked back to safety. Ambulances from Perry County checked the occupant’s well-being with a woman complaining of leg pain and shortness of breath. Other agencies on the scene included the North Bollinger County Fire Protection District and the Missouri State Highway Patrol water patrol division. The water was never over waist deep but was very swift.
