Man rescued from large puddle by firefighters

Firefighters from Temple Fire Station in Bristol rescued a van driver after he drove into a large puddle, stalled his engine and was unable to restart it.
When crews arrived at the puddle yesterday evening (Thursday 13 January 2011) they found the man sitting on the top of his van — which was surrounded by almost a foot of flood water.
Using slings and chains they were able to tow the vehicle to safety. An Avon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Fortunately no one was hurt".
