Man and dog saved from car in Welwyn Garden City lake
A man aged in his 70s and his dog were pulled from a car that had plunged into a lake.
Shocked onlookers swam across the boating lake at Stanborough Park, Welwyn Garden City, on Sunday after the car became submerged in the water.
The pair were put in a boat and taken to land. The man, who is from Potters Bar, was taken to hospital but discharged later in the day.
Police said he was "shaken" but "not injured".
A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Police said they eventually helped the man and his dog out of the car via other means.
She said the force was called at about 12:45 BST and the car was pulled from the water by the fire service shortly after 16:00.
