SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Firefighters saved two elderly women from knee-deep floodwaters after their car stalled in a deep puddle.

Leger said the vehicle stalled in an icy area of the road, and the women were forced to call for help.
The responding firefighters carried the two women to safety through knee-deep water. No one was injured in the incident.
