Cold water rescue team deployed at Ohio crash site had hope of survivors

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio (AP) - A Warren Fire Department official says a cold water rescue team that was deployed to the scene of a single-car crash where six Ohio teenagers were killed had hoped that some of those involved might be saved.

Warren Fire Department Capt. Bill Monrean tells The Associated Press that the rescue team pulled five teens out of the vehicle that veered into a guardrail, and overturned into a swampy pond Sunday morning just south of Wooster. They were put on ambulances and taken to area hospitals.

Monrean tells the AP that cold water extends life and that the team felt they had a chance, even if the teens had been in the vehicle for a period of time.

Monrean calls the accident a "sad, tragic situation."
