It almost looked like a scene out of one of Lynda Carter’s 1970’s Wonder Woman episodes except in this case it was all too real.
Carter was alone on her cruiser earlier this week on the Potomac River in Washington D.C. when she noticed something that looked like a body floating near her boat. Sure enough it turned out to be that of a human female. Carter, minus her cell phone, flagged down a nearby fishing boat and had them call 911. She then kept her boat near the body until rescuers and police arrived on the scene.
The floater was later identified as that of 47-year-old Helen Johnstone of Washington, according to the Associated Press. The D.C. Medical Examiner’s office stated that the cause of death has yet to be determined.
Carter says she “did what anybody would have done.” Obviously she never visited Connecticut.
