Seattle police officers rescued a man trapped inside a sinking car that had plunged into Lake Washington early Monday morning, the Seattle Times reported.
According to the Times, officers Dale Giese and Venessa Flick jumped into the nearly 50-degree lake water with a Seattle firefighter just after midnight to get to a car that had driven 50 feet into the lake.
The officers pulled the man to shore before the car completly sank, the Times reported. The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
It’s unclear how the car made it into Lake Washington in the first place.
