Police arrived within minutes. Three officers jumped into the water, knowing the lake had a reputation of being full of alligators and snakes.

The officers smashed the window on the woman's car and pulled her to safety. Seconds later, her car sank.

The woman told police she had fallen asleep before losing control of her car. She made it to dry ground without any injuries. Two officers had to be treated for minor cuts but thankfully nothing from those gators or snakes.
