OCEAN CITY -- An alert Ocean City vacationer was credited by police with saving a Westminster woman who jumped into Isle of Wight Bay Saturday night and was quickly swept away by a strong current.
Randy Lee Artz of Hagerstown told police he saw the woman in the water from his second-floor apartment at the Crab Cove Condominiums and ran down to help.
He swam out and pulled the woman to some nearby piers, where firefighters pulled them from the water.
The woman, identified as Belinda Victoria Griffith, 27, of the 1300 block of Pinch Valley Road in Westminster, refused medical treatment. She was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.
