EDMONTON - A man who spent 30 minutes submerged in icy water after his car flipped and slid into a drainage ditch was brought back to life by paramedics Wednesday evening following a dramatic rescue that involved firefighters and passersby. The driver, in his 50s, was in critical and unstable condition in hospital Wednesday night, said police Const. Gerry Zatylny. "It was a hell of a rescue effort, that's for sure," said Zatylny, who praised firefighters, paramedics and civilians.
