This is the moment a Smart car had to be plucked from a river by crane after being knocked into the water by a forklift.
One person was taken to hospital after the car with two passengers and a dog inside was knocked into a river in King's Lynn.
Hunstanton Coastguard Rescue Team was paged about a car in the River Ouse by the Humber and HM Coastguard Sutton Bridge on Tuesday (August 24) just before 8pm.
Norfolk Police was also called to the incident in Cross Bank Road in King's Lynn, after reports a Smart car had been knocked by a fork lift truck into the River Ouse.
When the rescue teams arrived on scene, the two passengers and the dog were out of the water on dry land.
An ambulance attended as a female passenger had a slight injury and she was taken to hospital by a relative to be checked over.
The partly submerged car was recovered and the road was cleared by 11.45pm.
