Florida deputies respond to 'car in pool' at apartment

- Deputies in Florida received a “car in pool” call on Tuesday.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office responded to an apartment complex in Okaloosa Island just after 2 p.m. to find a blue Honda Civic literally inside a pool, with pieces of a white fence underneath it.

The agency shared photos of the odd scene, stating a mother thought she put the car in park, when she ran back into an apartment unit to grab money, but it apparently didn’t go all the way into parking mode.

Her husband and daughter were inside the car when it landed in the pool, but everyone is expected to be okay, deputies said.

The sheriff’s office also said the incident brought a “new meaning to the term carpool.”
