A Pennsylvania woman faces charges that include risking a catastrophe after she jumped into a raging creek to “save” a couple dozen wild ducks.
Southern Regional Police in York County says Justina Laniewski went into the Codorus Creek in Glen Rock on Monday evening, and her 4-year-old started to follow her.
A neighbor grabbed the child, but it took eight firefighters from a nearby station to rescue the 41-year-old Laniewski from neck-high waters. She was also charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Court records say Laniewski told police she slipped and fell into the water.
