Incredibly Man Escapes a Submerged Car in Mississauga Pond
Someone had a very unfortunate Friday morning when they accidentally drove their vehicle into water, according to the QEW South Post.
Police say the man is lucky to be alive after he and his Dodge Challenger ended up in a Churchill Meadows pond.
“He got out through an open window,” Police Const. Rachel Gibbs told The Post.
According to Gibbs, the man said he lost control of his car at Thomas St. And Ninth Line, hit a fence, and ended up in the pond, as reported by The Post.
It’s never specified why the man lost control of his vehicle.
Police were notified at 7:46 a.m. when the man called about his car. The police dive unit was called in to search and the car was pulled out six hours later with the help of a heavy recovery tow trunk.
