   5 make it to shore after SUV plunges into Mississippi River in Brainerd :embarrassed:

 :doah: .....
BRAINERD, Minn. — In the predawn darkness Tuesday, Nov. 5, a vehicle missed a turn and was reported submerged in the Mississippi River in Brainerd along with five occupants.

 :popcorn: ...
The people in the car made it to shore and were taken by ambulance to Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center to be treated for signs of hypothermia, the Brainerd Police Department reported.

Shortly before 6 a.m., Police Chief Corky McQuiston said all the occupants had made it to shore by the time officers arrived. :happy1:

“The vehicle, a 2010 silver Ford Escape, was traveling in a northwesterly direction near the Community Garden area in Rotary Park when it failed to make a right turn and ran off the roadway,” the police department reported. “The vehicle was located almost 30 feet out from shore at a depth between 6 and 7 feet. The vehicle experienced moderate damage to the front end from leaving the roadway.”

The incident remains under investigation. :tut:

What, no damage from being in 7 feet of water? :rotflmao:
