GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (AP) - Five people have rescued a man from his car after he accidentally drove into Lake St. Clair in suburban Detroit.

Video posted online by Detroit-area news media (https://on.freep.com/2aKn7Nx ) shows the man, believed to be in his 60s or 70s, being pulled from his car Monday in Grosse Pointe Farms.

Police believe he had a health problem when his car crossed a median and two lanes of traffic before landing in Lake St. Clair.

Lt. Andrew Rogers says the man was unresponsive until the water hit his chin. He’s expected to be OK.

The man was rescued by three police officers and two people who were working nearby for a landscaping service. One of the landscapers, John Lyon, tells WDIV-TV that he didn’t hesitate to jump in the water.
