N.D. teen survives 30 minutes trapped in car, submerged in lake

Doctors call this 19-year-old survival a miracle after she swerved into a lake off of I-94 and was submerged underwater for 30 minutes before rescue crews saved her.

Sara Gullickson crashed near Valley City when she swerved to avoid a goose and landed in a nearby lake, says KSTP. Gullickson called for help on her cell phone as her car started filling with water.

When she was finally rescued, paramedics say she was unconscious. She was taken to Merit Care in Fargo where she was in a coma for nine days. Three weeks later she is working to regain her strength after the accident. She lost about 11 pounds of muscle.
