PLYMOUTH, Minn. -- When Geoffrey Racette left his job at Rainbow Foods on Saturday, he had no idea of the trip that ahead of him.

Riding his bike just a block from the store, he crossed to the road's other side because of too much ice and snow, suddenly seeing a car tire sticking up from a nearby pond.

"You saw a whole car on its side, backwards, facing the road, which means she had gone over the side, backwards," he described.

At first, he thought that car was empty, but soon realized what he thought was the car's airbag was instead its driver.

"I called out, asked if anybody was there and heard her go, 'Oh, thank God,'" Racette said.

Racette crawled through the car's broken back window and, with the car resting on its passenger side, saw Nancy Breberg, 67, of Centerville, tipped on her side, her feet on the driver's side window.
