The car submerged trapping the 3 inside. Dive Teams from the Freeport and Oyster Bay Fire Departments were requested for mutual aid at 6:14 PM. The Freeport FD Underwater Search & Rescue Squad responded on Truck Company’s Heavy Rescue 2172 along with Hose Company #1 and their Inflatable boat under the command of Chief VanCott.
