DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Four people - including a toddler - have been rescued from the roof of a submerged car that rolled into a Des Moines pond.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1DLTks9 ) that the crash happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday while the people were out sightseeing. Police are unsure whether the driver forgot to put the vehicle in park or had taken her foot off the brake pedal.

Rescue workers found a middle-aged woman, two teenagers and a 2-year-old child standing on top of the sunken vehicle. Workers say the people were standing in water up to their chests.

Rescuers used ropes to pull the four to safety, then towed the vehicle from the pond.
