DEKALB COUNTY, GA - Officer responded to reports of a car that drove into Candler Lake at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

The caller advised officers that the passengers were out of the car but were standing on top of the roof while the car was being submerged.

When officers arrived to the scene, the vehicle was fully underwater and both passengers swam to shore.
