UPDATE: Firefighters respond to truck in South Saskatchewan River

Warman Fire Rescue, MD Ambulance, Warman RCMP and Corman Park Police Service were called early Sunday, March 26 to the scene of a truck that broke through the ice at the Clarkboro Ferry crossing near Warman.

Two personnel trained in river rescue were deployed into the frigid waters of the South Saskatchewan River to assess whether the silver coloured half-ton was occupied. Warman Fire Rescue believe the vehicle was unoccupied based on a closer visual inspection from above the water surface. The truck was spotted with the engine and passenger compartment fully submerged about 80 metres from the west shore.

While the river was frozen over for much of the winter, open water has been flowing for a couple of weeks now in a couple of locations where crossings were made previously, including the spot where the truck went into the water this morning.

The call came in just after 7:30 Sunday morning and emergency responders were on scene for approximately an hour. Police continue to investigate.
