That sinking feeling… Car plunges into Gold Coast backyard pool

A car has taken a dip in a Gold Coast family’s backyard pool.

It’s understood the owner of the vehicle forgot to put the handbrake on, resulting in the car rolling down a hill at Arundel, launching over a retaining wall and diving into the pool.

The accident happened just after 6.45am this morning.


Luckily, no one was hurt.

A crane has since been called in to remove the vehicle from the water.
