Port St. Lucie police credit two good Samaritans with rescuing a driver who lost control of her Honda Civic and ended up in a lake.

It happened just before 11 a.m. Monday near SE Lennard Drive and SE Mariposa Avenue.

The driver was heading north on SE Lennard Drive when the motorist hit two traffic signs and a light pole before ended up in the water, police said.

Two people saw the car in the lake, jumped in, motioned for the driver to roll down the window and then pulled her to safety, according to police.

No one was hurt but the driver was taken to a hospital for observation, police said.

They said the rescuers deserve special thanks for their bravery.
