Divers Discover Car In Flooded Quarry

Last updated on Friday, February 8, 2008

(KENTLAND) - State conservation officers plan to use a crane to remove a car submerged in a flooded quarry near Kentland.

A body is believed to be in the car, which was upside down in about 56 feet of water that flooded the normally empty quarry.

Conservation Officer Matt Tholen says visibility and the water's 36 degree temperature made it too dangerous to send divers in to retrieve the vehicle.
