LUMBERTON, NC (WRAL-TV) --A Columbus County woman who mistakenly drove her SUV into a pond near Lumberton last week said Monday that she prayed and sang to pass the time until someone finally heard her cries for help.

Margaret Simmons, 84, traveled from her home in Evergreen last Wednesday to Lumberton to deliver a birthday cake to her brother-in-law. On her way home, she found herself on a dead-end road after checking out a rural paving project near Interstate 74, and when she tried to turn around, her Jeep Cherokee ended up in a pond.
