    Gael Salcedo, 18, was on his way to North Iowa Area Community College when his Jeep hit a patch of ice on the road, according to sources.

    Salcedo lost control of his car, he turned to the right and from there, everything went blurry, he said. His car, though,dived into the Winnebago River.

    “I didn’t know where I was going and then I just didn’t know what to do. I was just thinking in my head ‘I think I’m going to die,'” he told sources.

    Salcedo rolled the windows down, worried that his car would sink. The ice and water surrounding him were below freezing temperatures

    He couldn’t find his phone, so he did the next big thing: He used Siri.

    Officials with the Mason City Fire Department arrived at the scene quickly, but the river current immobilized the driver’s side door shut.

    There were no other options, Salcedo had to walk out, Lt. Craig Warner with the Mason City Fire Department told officials.

    With Warner’s help, Salcedo made it out of the river and into the ambulance. He was treated for shock and released from the hospital just a few hours later.
