CLEVELAND — Officers with the Cleveland Metroparks are being credited with diving into the water and pulling an unknown male to the surface after his vehicle crashed near the East 55th Street marina.
We’re told the male had driven onto a pedestrian walkway before going through a railing and into the water.
The Cleveland Fire Department says the male was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center.
On Wednesday morning, a Cleveland Metroparks official told 3News that the male had passed away.
Authorities did not provide the male’s name or age.
Another dive team was also sent into the water to make sure there was nobody else inside the vehicle. Nobody else was found.
The Cleveland Fire Department also tweeted multiple photos from the scene:
