CENTERVILLE, Minn. - It's been a whirlwind of emotions for Ron Breberg. His wife Nancy has been through a lot, too.
"You get pretty nervous when you're afraid you'll lose your wife," says Ron. "But she's doing as good as can be expected."
On Friday night, Nancy was making her way from Centerville to St. Louis Park, but somehow became lost and found herself driving down a road in Plymouth. It's then when her car slid off the road and into a pond.
"The vehicle was on its side, was not running and all the windows were closed," said Officer Melissa Johnson with the Plymouth Police. "She was unable to exit the vehicle on her own."
The car, hidden from passing motorists, sat in the pond half submerged with Nancy hanging in her seatbelt. She hung on until a passing cyclist spotted the vehicle at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and called police.
"Somebody was watching over," says Ron. "If that guy in the bicycle doesn't stop, I don't know when we would've found her."
Nancy is now recovering from bruises and frost bite at HCMC while her husband thanks the cyclist who stopped.
"I'd like to give him one heck of a hug and thank him for being in the right place at the right time," he says. "I can't thank him enough."
