ROGUE RIVER — A car submerged nearly two years in the Rogue River in Southern Oregon has been removed by a helicopter.

A woman trying to commit suicide drove the car into the river at Valley of the Rogue State Park in Rogue River in March 2011. She changed her mind when the car began to sink and was rescued.

The Mail Tribune in Medford reported that a heavy-lift helicopter paid for by the woman’s insurance company extracted the 2010 Subaru on Tuesday, using a 400-foot cable.
