Emergency services were called to rescue three casualties from the Broads late last night.
Police, fire, ambulance and coastguard attended the scene on at The Ferry Inn pub on Ferry Road, Horning, after a man in his 40s ploughed his car into the river.
Three men dived into the water to help the driver but had to be rescued by emergency services after getting into trouble.
Fire crews from Wroxham, Sprowston and Carrow used a surface rescue boat to transfer the casualties into the care of the ambulance.
