ELDERLY MAN RESCUED FROM SWOLLEN RANDOLPH COUNTY RIVER

(Randolph County, IN)--An elderly man was saved Sunday after floating a mile and a half down the flooded Mississinewa River in his car.  The 80-year-old told dispatchers he had become stranded in high water near the intersection of Highways 1 and 28 in Randolph County.  A nearby trooper arrived, but the man’s vehicle had already started floating down river.  Trooper Mike Bradbury then jumped into a passer-by’s truck and the two drove through the high water, waded into the river, and pulled the man to safety.  The water had reached the bottom of the car’s window.
