The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating a bizarre case that turned into a high-speed rescue on Interstate 75. Firefighters say it seemed like something out of a movie, not real life. But they made a dangerous rescue on I-75.
A woman told dispatchers she thought her car had been rigged with a bomb and it would go off if they slowed down below 50 mph. Firefighters saw two young children in the car. That's when they tackled what they call a rolling rescue.
The woman passed her 3 year old from her car to firefighters in a truck while running about 55 miles per hour.
Riceville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Brandon Ainsworth says he commends his men for the work they did. He adds, "They treated the call like there was a bomb on board. Thank goodness it was nothing and there were no injuries."
Amber Oakes and her husband Lance Oakes had another child in the car who apparently wouldn't let go of the mother. No one was injured. The ATF and Chattanooga Bomb Squad were dispatched. There was no bomb. The investigation continues.
