Unsecured Car Lost at Sea After Rolling Off Ferry

A 4×4 vehicle rolled from the back of a Manta Ray Fraser Island ferry barge off the Queensland coast on December 31, as a group of tourists were making their way out to the island to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

Chlöe Swift was a member of the group and captured the moment the vehicle rolled into the water. On Facebook she wrote, “Luckily nobody inside the car! But quite a few phones, debit cards, passports and valuables all gone.”

According to local reports, the vehicle sank within minutes and emergency services were not called to the scene. Credit: Facebook/Chlöe Swift via Storyful
