A 65 year-old man lost control of his car while driving alongside Lake St. Clair in Michigan.

Local landscapers jumped in to rescue him.

'The landscapers were using a rock and weren't really getting any good hits on it, so I retrieved an ax from my vehicle, and Keith Colombo got his baton, and that's how were were able to get access the window and get through,' Grosse Pointe Farms Public Safety Officer Michael Scott told CBS News.

After 5-7 minutes, the good samaritans managed to pull the man out of the water. He was unconscious, and was rushed to the hospital. He has since made a full recovery.
