Female Good Samaritan Swept Away In Rushing Water


BEL AIR, MD – Maryland State Police continue searching for at least one more victim who was swept away by swift water Friday evening in Harford County. According to witnesses, around 6 p.m. on Friday in the area of Route 136 and James Run, a vehicle with someone inside became disabled on the Broad Run Bridge due to rushing water that had submerged the vehicle up to its roof. A truck with a man and a woman pulled up to the scene and attempted to assist. Police say the woman and man from the truck retrieved a rope and tried to assist the motorist in the vehicle on the bridge. At some point, the woman trying to assist fell and was swept over the bridge and into the rushing water. Later, the disabled vehicle went over the side of the bridge and got swept into the water. The vehicle was located later about a quarter of a mile from the scene. Authorities on Saturday recovered the body of 67-year-old Daniel Samis of Abingdon from the vehicle. The female Good Samaritan has yet to be located and search efforts for her continue. Her identity has not yet been released.
