Woman attempted suicide by driving into Hanover Pond, saved by two men


MERIDEN — A 20-year-old woman attempting suicide by driving her car into Hanover Pond Saturday morning was rescued by two men.

According to police, the two men used boards to smash the windshield of the car that was nearly submerged in the pond and dragged the woman to shore.

Police are not releasing the names of the men or the woman, who is receiving psychiatric care. The two men were acquaintances of the woman but weren’t in the car when she drove it into the pond near Habersham Field.

Police found a car submerged in Hanover Pond around 6 a.m. this morning but were unable to immediately find the driver.

Assistant Fire Chief Robert Burdick said firefighters used a wrecker to pull the car from the pond. Firefighters searched the water but found no one.
