CLEAR LAKE | A crew of about eight men worked for hours in subzero temperatures Tuesday to recover a luxury SUV that fell through thin ice on Clear Lake.
The 2017 Lexus RX 350 went into the water sometime Monday. At first, it was just the front of the SUV, allowing the people inside to get out and walk to shore.
Overnight, the SUV submerged itself in about 10 feet of water, with 3 to 4 feet of water above the vehicle. It went through the ice on the southwestern side of the lake, more than 200 yards from the shoreline.
"I've been doing this since 1987," Bob Kirschbaum said. “I’ve never seen a Lexus go through the ice.”
