TREMONT (AP) — Maine firefighters say they had to rescue a couple from New York after they took a wrong turn and accidentally drove into the Atlantic Ocean.

WMTW-TV reported (http://bit.ly/2xMLCnq ) firefighters were called to the docks in Tremont around 8 p.m. Tuesday after there were reports of two people trapped in a car in the water. Officials say the couple’s SUV was in 8 to 10 feet (2.4 to 3.1 meters) of water after they travelled down a boat ramp into the water.

A video shows extremely foggy conditions in the area of the dock.
