AUBURN (CBS) – A pregnant woman and her boyfriend were saved from a sinking car by two construction workers.

The car went off the road on Route 290 in Auburn and landed upside down in a swamp.

Two construction workers were nearby and heard the splash.

They rushed over and tried to open the doors.

“We spent I think a good five minutes, kicking the windows, panicking basically,” says rescuer Craig Bussiere.

“The car was underwater,” he says.

John Bukkhegyi says knowing the woman was pregnant made them work even harder.

They finally broke the side and rear windows with a hammer and got the couple to safety.

The woman and her boyfriend were taken to the hospital to be checked out. Both are expected to be fine.
