The Anne Arundel County, Maryland, police were Johnny-on-the-spot Friday night when a minivan carrying four people, including two small children, crashed and landed in a pond.
The police released video of the water rescue from a drainage pond at Severn-Danza Park, in Severn.
“Close your eyes, close your eyes,” an officer commands the people inside before he smashes the windows on the van’s passenger’s side to get them out.
A 3-year-old and a 9-month-old were carried to safety before the adults were rescued. No one was hurt.
The driver, Oswaldo Ramirez-Lopez, of Glen Burnie, was arrested on outstanding warrants.
