Two tourists in Hawaii were rescued after they drove their car straight into the ocean while following their GPS directions.
The incident occurred at Honokohau Harbour in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island. The tourists, who were sisters, were following their GPS to the location of a snorkel tour company when it instructed them to drive down a boat ramp and into the water.
The sisters, who have not been identified, apparently did not question the GPS directions and drove their car into the harbour at a high speed. The car quickly filled with water and began to sink.
A sailboat crew that was anchored in the harbour saw the car driving into the water and quickly came to the rescue. The crew used ropes and buoys to attach to the car and tow it to safety.
The sisters were not injured in the incident. They were taken to shore by the sailboat crew and interviewed by police.
The police said that the sisters told them that they had been following their GPS directions and did not realise that they were driving into the water. The police said that the sisters were issued a citation for careless driving.
