FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — For roughly 30 minutes, the sturdy hands of Forsyth County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Seabolt were all that stood between Sandy Callis' head and the frigid waters of a shallow creek bed.

"I felt like we were there for an eternity," the 25-year-old deputy told the AJC. Seabolt was one of the first to arrive Tuesday at Keith Bridge Road near Cantrell Circle, where Callis' 2005 Buick LaCrosse had overturned down an embankment after swerving to miss an oncoming car.
