Updated: Monday, February 17 2014, 07:21 AM EST
A woman was pulled from the French Broad River this morning after her car slid off the road.

Officials said Doray Woods' vehicle slid off Emma Road due to ice or snow just after 8 a.m.

Woods told emergency officials she was on her way to work when the accident happened.

She called her husband Nathan for help, and when he arrived at the scene he went into the water to save his wife.

Nathan tells News 13 he couldn't get the door open, so he smashed the window and pulled his wife to safety.

She was treated on the scene by emergency personnel and then transferred to Mission Hospital for a check up.

City crews responded to treat the icy spot in the road.Woman Rescued from SUV in River
