Good Samaritans Help Save Occupants of Car That Plunged Into San Leandro Marina

A car overturned and careened into San Leandro Marina on Sunday, and a pair of good Samaritans acted quickly to help the three occupants get back to land safely, according to San Leandro police.

About 2 p.m., police received reports of a solo vehicle crash into the water at the marina. The two good Samaritans jumped into the water and broke the car windows, allowing the occupants to get out, police said. The occupants made it back to land and fled the scene before officers arrived.

Police said if it hadn't been for the two Samaritans who jumped into action, "it would have been a different outcome."

The car was removed from the water about 4:15 p.m.
