A close call for a Jefferson County woman who spent nearly two hours stuck in a pond drain tube.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff Jeff Herrig says the woman was cleaning out the drain of a pond Sunday on her property near 132nd and Ferguson Road when a blockage broke free, and her leg got sucked in.

Several emergency response crews worked to free her. Herrig says she was taken to the hospital with a leg injury and possible hypothermia, but is expected to recover.
