A possibly intoxicated man swam to safety to shore Tuesday morning after driving his Nissan Altima deep into Mission Bay.
The incident happened in the 3700 block of Crown Point Drive, near Crown Point Park, around 4:45 a.m., according to San Diego Police Department.
Upon arrival, first responders – including lifeguards and divers – found the man on land.
A videographer at the scene said the man told police he got into a fight with his wife and went to a bar before being driven into the bay.
It reportedly briefly lost two adults and two small children in a homeless encampment near the water’s edge.
Lifeguards searched the submerged car to make sure no one else was in it.
