Dive Team Fishes Truck out of Bay

Posted: Updated:

A Corpus Christi couple manage to escape their vehicle after it plows into the water.  Police say the driver put the truck in reverse instead of drive, and ended up plunging into the Corpus Christi Bay.  It happened just after 7 O'clock this morning along Shoreline near the American Bank Center.  The two people in the truck were able to get out and swim back to the seawall.  Mike Zapata was standing nearby and grabbed his camera to capture the whole ordeal. 

Mike Zapata told 3 News, "I just came over here to take some pictures with my camera and I heard a snap.  I looked over and the next thing I see is this Avalanche in the bay!"

The truck immediately began sinking.  Police say the CCPD dive team will help recover the submerged truck.
