On Sunday at 6:21 pm, Long Beach Fire responded to reports of a single vehicle traffic accident on Studebaker Rd. just south of Loynes Dr. Upon the arrival of fire units it was determined that the vehicle had gone off the road and entered the water.
The vehicle was submerged in approximately 10 feet of water. The Long Beach Fire Marine Safety Dive-Rescue team, LBFD US&R team, and L.A. County Fire Department Heavy Wrecker were immediately requested for additional support and assistance. Divers entered the water and pulled a person out.
That person was transported to a local area hospital and was later determined deceased. As divers continued their search, an additional person was found. That man was trapped inside the vehicle.
The Heavy Wrecker successfully removed the vehicle from the water where the second man was evaluated and determined deceased on scene by LBFD paramedics.
