While talking to a local media outlet, Ingram described the incident and said that the car was right in front of him. He went on to say that the car went out of control while crossing the railroad tracks, adding that after hitting the hydrant, the car flipped and directly landed upside-down in the icy pond. Ingram then heard of the passenger's in the car screaming for help and he immediately ran to help them out.

Ingram said that the guy inside the car was shouting for people to get him out because the water was coming inside. He further added that when he opened the car door, water started going in but he could see the passenger coming out. Recalling the incident, Ingram said that he dived into the pond so that he could open one of the car doors. He was able to pull out all the three men to safety by dragging them towards the shore.

According to reports, Ingram said that he was glad to be at the right place at the right time, adding that whenever he looks back at the pictures he took that day, he will remember that he was able to save three lives.
