The rescuers who pulled five children from a car that crashed into a St. Louis Park retention pond were honored for their bravery Thursday night. The men braved frigid conditions on Nov. 21, 2013, when a car swerved off the road and into a pond. They say they are not heroes. “We were still doing our job [that we were] trained to do,” said Cpt. Paul Rosholt of the St. Louis Park Fire Department.
A mother who crashed into a St. Louis Park retention pond with a car full of children is now facing jail time. Marian Guerrido was driving with her three kids and two of her boyfriend’s children last November when she lost control, submerging the car.
There will be no felony charges filed against the driver of the car that plunged into a retention pond in St. Louis Park last fall, killing two young children, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.
