A man is lucky to be alive after a crashing into the water.

Leon Rudman, 73, was driving in Easton when his car flipped and landed in a shallow brook.

He was able to break free from his seatbelt.

A retired firefighter heard the crash and rushed to help.

Rudman walked away with just a sore neck.

Rudman says he thinks his car slipped on a patch of ice or a rock, causing it to veer off the road and flip.
