A Florida deputy saved an Orlando woman by pulling her from a pond she had walked into.
Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Hess rescued an Orlando resident after she had walked into a retention pond, Newsweek reports.
Officers responded after receiving a phone call from the woman's daughter on Sept. 7. She said her mother disappeared from her home between the hours of 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.
The daughter stated that this isn't the first time her mother had disappeared, but it is the first time it has been reported. Before this incident, she had gone missing nine other times.
In the bodycam video posted on Facebook, Hess can be seen jumping into the pond and pulling the woman to safety.
According to the redacted police report, the woman said she didn't remember how she got into the pond and claimed she was "done with this life,” Newsweek reports.
The woman, whose name has not been released, is currently being held in custody under Florida's Baker Act. It is a law that can be used by families and friends to have someone held involuntary if they need mental health services.
