MOUNTAIN CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A utility shared a photo of its linemen rescuing a woman from floodwaters in Johnson County last week.
In a Facebook post, Mountain Electric Cooperative said two of its linemen, Rick Courtner and Cody Bryant, used a bucket truck to rescue the woman from her truck last Thursday.
Authorities say she was traveling on Hwy 91 in Laurel Bloomery when a rockslide pushed her truck into a creek. The vehicle floated at least 100 yards downstream before it became stuck in the middle of the raging creek.
The woman was not injured according to emergency management.
