(RIVERSIDE, Ohio) — The crew of the Anderson Ferry probably saved the life of a man whose car lost its brakes and drove into the Ohio River, the Cincinnati television station WCPO reported. The auto was boarding the ferry when the driver lost control. He was able to exit the vehicle before it sank to the bottom of the river, and the ferry crew and one passenger pulled him to safety using a life ring.
