At least three persons were feared dead at the weekend when their vehicle plunged into a river in Agbarho, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
However, two of the five occupants of the ill-fated vehicle survived.
Findings by National Mirror showed that the survivors swam into safety as the vehicle, a Volkswagen Audi car; with registration umber AH 489 KLK, plunged into Agbarho Bridge, few kilometres to Warri, the commercial capital of the state.
Officials of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) were at the scene yesterday as local divers combed the river for the missing passengers.
Commuters and passersby wept uncontrollably as the vehicle was recovered from the river.
Rescue efforts resulted in traffic gridlock on the East-West Road.
