Fort Wayne firefighters were called to a submerged passenger car at Ivan Lebamoff Reservoir Park on Wednesday.

The driver, who was out of the car when Engine 11 arrived just after 5:30 p.m. at the park on the city's south side, had no apparent injuries, according to Deputy Chief Adam O'Connor of the Fort Wayne Fire Department.

A firefighter wearing a “Gumby,” or water rescue suit, assisted an on-call tow truck with hooking the car to a chain in order to pull it out of the water, estimated at about 4 feet deep, O'Connor said.
