GLEN ROCK, Pa. (WHTM) -
A York County woman was arrested Monday night after she jumped into the flooded Codorus Creek so that she could save a flush of ducks, according to police.

Southern Regional Police said 41-year-old Justina Laniewski, of Glen Rock, was intoxicated when she jumped into the creek behind Glen Rock Hose and Ladder Company.

Laniewski feared that the 20-30 wild ducks would be hurt or killed because of Hurricane Sandy and the rising flood waters, police said.

She had to be rescued because of the fast turbulent water. Police said she placed several firefighters in danger because of her recklessness.

Laniewski was evaluated by EMS at the scene and arrested by police on charges of risking a catastrophe, reckless endangerment, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct. She was later released on $5,000 unsecured bail.

I think she's being overcharged.

There should be a special charge for risking EMS lives. They were DUCKS. I thought if it had been her personal pet, I could understand her going after it, but not 20-30 wild ducks. Stupid drunk! Hell, they probably felt like they were on a wild white water ride! :lol:

At least she gave the firemen, oh, excuse me, fireFIGHTERS (sounds so much more heroic) something to do besides hang out at the fire station playing cards.

You're the one who wants to hang the lady for trying to save some ducks.

:lol: No, I want to kick her a$$ for doing something stupid & unnecessarily risking the lives of emergency personnell to save her stupid a$$. The ducks were safer than she was. And being drunk is no excuse for being stupid.

Ducks quickly become confused and disoriented in turbulent waters, and can easily drown in such a situation. Have you ever gone white water rafting? I've done it a few times, and never once did I see a duck.

As the Northeast accesses the damage from the devastating Hurricane Sandy, the first inspiring rescue stories are starting to surface. According to NBC New York, a frightened deer was rescued from the rough surf of a Monmouth county beach in New Jersey.

Even deer didn't know what to do.

Seriously? You think this woman's actions were valid? She put emergency responders' lives at risk in exchange for the possibility of saving a few ducks. Firefighters don't mind it when people choose to NOT be stupid and leave them (the firefighters) with nothing to do. Perhaps the next time you go white water rafting, you can slap a helmet on Daffy and take him along, see if he handles it ok :roll:

To make matters worse I read that her 4 yr old was following her and a aneighbor grabbed the kid or the kid would have went right in with the stoned Mom.

I know what you mean Vic, when I was coming up we called them 'Firemen' and 'policemen', we already knew that they responded to emergencies.
'Associates' use to be 'cashiers' or 'stock boys' and homosexuals were not 'gay', and I'm no longer permitted to express what they were called lest I risk being labeled a 'homophobe', a word which didn't even exist 20 years ago.

Also "waitresses" and "secretaries" are now "servers" and "administrative assistants".

Why are you more worked up over terms for firemen than what this dipsh!t did?

I have forwarded this story to the Audubon Society, with a suggestion that they give the lady a reward, or at least some recognition for her brave rescue attempt.

Thats because they were smart enough to fly, something they can do other than swim.

More than firefighters responded to the call. Police, EMS, etc were there I'm sure. Careful Vic, your ignorance is showing...

Oh, you misunderstand...no offense was intended. More than likely, even if it was, I somehow doubt you'd have gotten it anyhow :D
