Rescue Attempt
2 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A tow truck driver named Danny puts up a "Tow Away Zone" sign in front of a parked car and tows it away.After the theme, a tomato truck overturns dumping hundreds of tomatoes on the highway.

The next day, Jon and Ponch go on a picnic with Ellen, Chris, and Marla,who happens to be Danny's daughter.

Meanwhile, Danny tows in a car and we find out that he's stealing them to pay off a loan. Since he has to work late, Marla goes to work with Ponch.

Later, Danny calls and tells Marla he has to keep working.The next day, Marla steals Chris's motorbike and goes home to try to get her dad on the CB. Danny's partner in crime goes to Danny's house to stop the girl. She sneaks out and hides in the car he's towing.

After towing it to a junkyard, they raise it with a crane to hide it with Marla inside. Ponch climbs the crane and rescues her just before the car crashes to the ground.

This is another entertaining episode from the light action cop show as Ponch makes a rescue attempt!!
