Ford Falcon Remains On The Bottom Of Swansea Channel

Police aren't sure how to get it out

Ford Falcon Remains On The Bottom Of Swansea Channel

A car continues to sit at the bottom of Swansea Channel this morning, after crashing off the bridge last night.

The 40 year old female driver lost control of her Ford Falcon in the wet, ploughing through a fence.

Incredibly she managed to climb out the window and swim to shore.

Police say as the car started to plunge off the bridge, she started winding down her window.

She was taken to hospital as a precaution.

The car appears to have drifted east of the bridge.

"Firstly water police and the RMS will attempt to locate the vehicle, then attempt to salvage it," Inspector Steve Gallagher said.

Police hope to remove the car on Thursday.
