Just before 10am this morning, emergency services were summoned to the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, Wales. The Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service initially reported that the victim was rescued from the “submerged vehicle” and placed in the care of the Hazardous Area Response Team. However, the police have now disclosed that the man has passed away. A picture of the dock area displayed damaged metal railings where the car is believed to have submerged into the water. Detective Inspector Chris Evans stated, “Emergency services arrived at the scene and found a vehicle fully immersed in the water. The corpse of a man was discovered inside the car. The fatality is presently being treated as inexplicable, and investigations are ongoing to ascertain the complete circumstances surrounding the incident.”
