Van ends up in Brinker Lake


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A day out on the water ended before it even began in Waterloo Monday morning.

Crews were called to the Brinker Lake boat ramp just after 9:00 Monday morning for a water rescue.

According to the Battalion Chief, the owner of the van says he had put the vehicle in park and set the parking brake before unloading the boat.

But, as he was in the process of unloading the boat, something caused the van and the trailer to roll backwards.

No one was hurt in the incident, but the van sat submerged in the water for more than an hour before crews could get it hooked up and hauled out.
