Submerged Vehicle in Green Lake Recovered 

Today, Seattle Police Department’s Harbor Unit conducted a vehicle recovery operation on a car that had been driven into Green Lake earlier this month.

A man in crisis drove his vehicle into the lake in the 7200 block of East Green Lake Drive North and was unable to retrieve it. After he made it safely out of the water, he called 911 for help in recovering his vehicle and to address concerns that led to his car’s location under water.

SPD’s Harbor Unit pulled the car to shore around 12:00 p.m. The officers utilized a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV), a highly maneuverable underwater machine to find the car. Police divers then assisted the tow truck driver in securing the car that was approximately 50 feet from shore and below 12 feet from the surface of the lake.
