MERIDEN, Conn. (WTNH) – A 20-year-old woman attempted suicide by driving her car into Hanover Pond about 6 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Two men, who were in the car before it became almost completely submerged, used pieces of wood they found nearby to smash out the rear window and pull the woman to safety, police said.

It’s unclear at which point the men exited the vehicle.

The woman is receiving psychiatric treatment and is safe at this time, police said.
