OAKWOOD, Ohio — Emergency crews in Ohio had an unusual rescue operation on their hands last week – a fire truck submerged in a river.

Oakwood firefighters were testing equipment that had failed the previous evening at the time of the incident, according to The Lima News.

However, it's unclear how exactly the apparatus ended up submerged in the Auglaize river.
