When a woman in Minnesota drove off the highway into a lake last week, she lucked out by having the right person driving behind her for a harrowing rescue.

Sophia Eversvik, 27, suffered a seizure that caused her to veer off Interstate 94 in Alexandria, Minn., at 70 miles an hour, according to WCCO, a Minnesota TV station.

Sgt. Jesse Grabow, a spokesman for the Minnesota State Patrol, was right behind her and dove into the water, he told WCCO.

But the doors were locked, and he could not get the attention Eversvik's attention, who was motionless.

Trooper Chris Halder, who soon arrived for back-up, broke a window on a back door in order to pull Eversvik out of the car just moments before it sank, the TV station said.
