YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an off-duty fire captain came to the rescue of a couple whose pickup truck went off the road and into the river in New York’s Westchester County.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1IZmya0 ) says Capt. Robert Smith of Station 9 in Yonkers was driving Sunday evening when he witnessed the truck go into the Saw Mill River near the parkway’s Odell Avenue overpass.

Authorities say Smith found the truck partially submerged after seeing it hydroplane on the wet roadway.

They say the man and woman inside did not appear to be seriously injured.

Smith helped pulled the man out and carried the woman to the safety of the riverbank.
