TowZone Posted September 27, 2020 Share Posted September 27, 2020 A man drowned early Sunday trying to tow his car from a retention pond on the northeast side. The 34-year-old victim had called a tow truck to the pond at on the 4000 block of Pendleton Way about 4:30 a.m. to help him get the car out of the pond, according to a news release from the Indianapolis Fire Department. The car was submerged in about 10 feet of water. The victim and the tow truck driver entered the pond to hook the car to the tow truck, said IFD Capt. Rita Reith in a news release. The driver told fire officials that the man began flailing about once in the water, almost pulling the driver underneath. The driver got out of the water and called 911. IFD divers were sent to the scene at 4:42 a.m., arriving at 4:50 a.m. Three minutes later, they recovered the victim’s body. Reith said several witnesses were able to help the divers locate the man quickly, who was about 20 feet off shore. The victim’s identity has not been released. Reith said it was unclear when or how the car went into the pond. RESOURCE LINK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
