Mom dies after family submerged in water while riding an ATV in Pennsylvania

A mother who was riding in an SUV with her family died Saturday when it was submerged in water, according to Pennsylvania authorities.

Jamie Uchic, 37, of Jermyn, Pennsylvania, was killed in an accidental drowning in Aylesworth Park, the Lackawanna County Coroner’s Office told NBC News on Monday.

The park is located in Archbald, approximately 115 miles northwest of Newark, New Jersey.

Archbald Police Chief Tim Trently said what appeared to be a puddle was actually four to five feet deep, causing the vehicle to overturn in the water.

Trently said the woman was traveling with her family. Her husband rescued their children but could not free his wife.

The Times Tribune in Scranton reported that the family’s two children were riding alongside their parents on private property in an area frequented by ATV riders on Saturday afternoon.

Archbald Police did not immediately respond to NBC News requests for comment Monday.

After the crash, the man and his children made a long hike through difficult terrain to seek help, and Trently said it took crews about 45 minutes to begin responding.

None of Uchic’s relatives could be reached for comment. Mom dies after family submerged in water while riding an ATV in Pennsylvania
