A Florida Panhandle family emerged wet, but otherwise unscathed, after their car took a rolling dip in the pool — with two of them inside.
On Tuesday, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page photos of a blue, four-door Honda Civic completely submerged in a Crestview apartment complex’s pool.
The driver thought she had put the car in park while she ran into her apartment while her husband and daughter waited in the car.
“New meaning to the term carpool,” a deputy who reported to the afternoon scene wrote. “Mom thought she put the car in park when she ran back in to the apartment to grab money.”

Apparently, though, it didn’t go all the way into park. The passengers were able to get out of the car safely, while police divers attended to the car.
The family was not identified — probably, much to their relief.
