Iโ€™ve always said there were cars at the bottom of Lake Como! One was a โ€œdumpโ€ car, left it in drive and bailed!
Enjoy!

was at the Athens ramp 4 years ago loading up, when young man intentionally runs his car into lake, gets out of car, takes his clothes off and swims off into the darkness.
Paddled out to see if anyone was in car while it was going down.. guys swims back into waiting arms of police a half hour later as they are pulling vehicle out.

The police got a tow truck out there, got the tow hooked up and were pulling it in 30 minutes?!?! That's either a great response time or they have had lot's of practice.

Interesting video. I agree thatโ€™s not the only lake with cars in it. I think they pulled an old one out of Benbrook last year.

Wonder how those divers get paid. They do a fantastic job. I guess the video business pays well. Cool video and interesting. thumb

There were 3 or 4 cars found submerged at a boat ramp near the COE office. The speculation was that 1 of the cars might be connected to the 3 girls who disappeared from the Seminary South parking lot in the 70's. Turned out to be a dead-end. We used to have keg parties at that ramp back in high school. We called that spot "The Pit".

Do you think if a GW was there someone might have gotten a ticket for using illegal means to catch fish?
