Elizabeth Little and her father, Norman Little, were in their home when they heard a huge booming crash from outside. They had no idea what had happened until they went outside and saw an enormous motorhome submerged in their swimming pool! Stephen Pierro had been driving his motorhome when his foot got stuck and he lost control of his vehicle. He smashed through the Little home’s fence and crashed into the swimming pool.
Norman Little and a friend, Larry Lambert, rushed to rescue Mr Pierro, who was floating next to the motorhome. Together, they dragged him out of the water to safety. Emergency services soon arrived on the scene and carefully removed the motorhome from the pool. Thankfully, Mr Pierro wasn’t seriously injured in the accident.
Elizabeth Little helped her father and his friend drag Mr. Pierro out of the water:
“Thank God my dad was home, the guy would have died.”
Just before 9 AM, they heard a loud noise outside and looked out. They immediately spotted the white RV submerged with Mr. Pierro floating alongside. Mr Lambert says:
“He was free in the water, and we just had to grab him.”
Emergency responders worked tirelessly to pull out the motorhome, careful to drain all the gasoline from the tank:
“We don’t want anything to spray or cause a fire,” acting Fire Chief Timothy Murphy said.
