BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Two adults and a child died after a vehicle went down a boat ramp and into the water at a southern Indiana lake, police said.
Witnesses heard the driver call for help and try to get out of the vehicle as it began to sink about 10:30 p.m. Saturday at Lake Monroe near Bloomington, according to state conservation officer Lt. Angela Goldman.
The witnesses weren’t able to rescue those inside before the vehicle sank at the Paynetown State Recreation Area, Goldman said.
Divers pulled a man, a woman and a boy from the vehicle. The two adults were pronounced dead at the scene, while the child was declared dead at a Bloomington hospital.
Additional information about those who died wasn’t immediately released as Goldman said Sunday that officials were working to notify their families.
