BOURNE, MASS. (WHDH) - Emergency officials helped a man get out of the water after his car was found submerged near a boat ramp on Cape Cod late Monday night.
Officers responding to a report of a car in the water in the area of Barlows Landing Road in Bourne’s Pocasset village just before 11:30 p.m. found a white sedan that had become submerged with a man inside, according to the Bourne Police Department.
The 32-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the man was able to get out of the vehicle on his own and was assisted out of the water by officers.
Divers searched the area after the man told first responders that he couldn’t remember if there was anyone else in the car with him, according to Bourne Fire and Rescue Deputy Richard Emberg.
“Divers went in, broke all the windows, and checked to make sure no victims were in the backseat, underneath the seat, or underneath the dash,” Emberg said.
There were no other people found during the search and it’s not clear how the car ended up in the water.
An investigation remains ongoing.
