A Sacramento fisherman has done a heroic task of rescuing four children after their car went veering into the Sacramento River as their mother was shot and killed while driving this week. Harrell Fischer then recounted the entire harrowing story, explicitly explaining everything to the NBC station KCRA 3.
At around 9:30 p.m. Monday night, Fischer was working on his boat on the Sacramento River along with another fisherman. They then noticed taillights nearby and rushed towards it. They could also hear the screaming.
They went right up to the door and Fischer saw a little face looking up at him as he opened up the passenger door. He just melted that time but the time was extremely intense. Later, Fisher added that he saw more two little hands poke out too. They needed help and of course, it was evident enough.
Fischer said that he started helping the kids by taking them out of the submerged car and into the boat but then found out that there was another kid in. He saved four children in total and the eldest one informed him that their mother had been shot.
The 6-year-old child told Fischer that it isn’t easy to come back from a shot like that! The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office then made the investigations and the mother driving the car was pronounced dead at the crime scene. She had a gunshot wound on her upper body, according to the sheriff’s office in a press release on Tuesday.
Moreover, an adult male was also rescued from the car and is now arrested as a suspect involved in the shooting. However, the motive behind the shooting is not yet known as investigations are being carried on. Though Mandiko Kwadzo, 27, was arrested and charged with murder by homicide detectives and was then booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail.
