She was plucked to safety by the crew on a building site nearby after they spotted the plight of her and her husband.

The workers used a crane to lower colleague Jason Oglesbee down to lift the woman free of the water and away to safety.

While they were able to rescue the woman, her husband drowned after the boat overturned on the Des Moines River, Iowa.
