Two people and a dog were safety rescued from four-feet of water Sunday, Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart said.

A man, a three-year-old boy and a dog were in a truck driving over a low-water bridge on Drake Road in Sallisaw when the truck hydro-locked and got stuck in four feet of water, Lockhart said.

A swift water rescue team from Muldrow came and towed the truck with the three inside to safety.

There were no injuries.
