TONAWANDA, NY (WKBW) - A woman needed rescuing Friday morning after becoming trapped on the hood of her car when it plunged into the canal in the City of Tonawanda.

The woman told police that her brakes failed as she was coming out of a plaza on Longs Avenue, sending her car into the canal near 150 Fillmore Avenune.

The woman is okay, and crews are working to retrieve the vehicle from the water.
