Marine Unit Makes an Unusual Recovery

Not your average call....

On Saturday evening, our Marine Unit was called to assist an individual whose prosthetic leg had fallen into the water off Bay Pointe Marina. The "owner" was attempting to get his dinghy up onto the dock when he slipped and fell in the water. His prosthetic leg and cell phone fell to the surface approx. 15 feet below.

Using an Outland Technology Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV), Officer Wood was able to recover the prosthesis and the owner's cell phone - which was still working!
