Amid torrential rains and winds lashing southern california, a Tesla with three people inside, including a child, crashed and ended up at the bottom of a Pasadena pool.
According to the Pasadena Fire Department, the accident happened in the backyard of a house located in the 700 block of West California Boulevardnear South Grand Avenue and La Loma Road.
The Department tweeted what the driver of the Tesla vehicle mistakenly stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, went through a wall and then into the pool. Two adults and a child were traveling in the car.
“Good Samaritans jumped into the pool and rescued the occupants,” the department tweeted.
Pasadena City Manager Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian, told Fox News Digital that “two staff members at a preschool next door to the residence rescued the occupants of the car: two adults and a 4-year-old child.”
The current status of the three rescued people, or if any of the passengers were injured, is unknown.
Just last week, a Tesla car, carrying four people, fell off a cliff about 250 feet on Highway 1 in Devil’s Slide, California.
Four people, including two adults and two children, were safely rescued. An official at the scene said the two adults and the children, ages 9 and 4, were in critical condition but were conscious and alert when rescuers arrived.
Likewise, several helicopters came to help evacuate the victims of the Tesla, which landed on its wheels at the bottom of the rocky precipice.
