MI Woman Falls in Lake While Texting

A Mishawaka woman is being called a hero after she helped rescue another woman who fell into the frigid St. Joseph River.

It happened about 9:30 last night in St. Joseph.

44-year-old Bonnie Miller from Benton Harbor was walking with her husband and son on the south pier...texting...when she fell into the cold, fast-moving river side of the pier.

But a 19-year-old woman from Mishawaka happened to be right there with friends.

"I didn't even think about it I just saw her was running and jumped in"

...and jumped in."

Miller didn't have to go to the hospital.

Her husband says she's shaken up but back and work today.
