WEST HEMPSTEAD, L.I. — AIR 11 was over the scene of a vehicle is submerged in the water of a Long Island lake Tuesday morning.

State troopers and EMS workers were on the scene as the vehicle could be seen under the water, far off shore in Hempstead Lake, part of Hempstead Lake State Park, located in West Hempstead.

Emergency divers were inspecting the submerged vehicle earlier, perhaps searching to see if anyone was inside the vehicle. Divers have since left the water.

It appears authorities have attached a line to potentially pull the vehicle out of the lake.
