There were four people in the car, three of which were able to climb out of the car independently. The fourth occupant has been helped by the bystanders.

“At least eight or nine people have jumped into the water,” says a spokesman for the fire service.

The foursome eventually got off well. Nobody had to be taken to hospital.


But how the accident happened is still unclear. “In any case, no other vehicles were involved,” said the spokesman.

According to a witness, the driver reversed and, after hitting a garbage can, the car ended up upside down in the water.

The car had yet to be taken out of the water and will now be towed away by a recovery company.
