Kosciusko Co., Ind. A 15-year-old narrowly escaped a submerged SUV on Saturday.
Aubert Clevenger, was trying to back-up his uncle's SUV and boat trailer to launch a boat at Beaver Dam Lake in Kosciusko County when he panicked and pressed the gas instead of the brake.
Clevenger left the driver's door open, and jumped from the vehicle, as it began to sink, swimming to shore.
Conservation officers are reminding boaters that public access ramps require operators to be licensed drivers, and that backing up trailers should be practiced.
No charges were filed.
