Car pulled from Marine Lake.
A COUPLE were pulled to safety by rescuers after their car drove into West Kirby marine lake.
The RNLI were called to the southern end of the lake, where the car was sitting in the water.
The occupants did not sustain any major injuries and declined medical attention.
Merseyside Police were called to the scene at 9.45pm on Sunday evening to reports of a partially submerged car. The Wirral Coastguard arrived on the scene at 9.55pm, but by then the vehicle had already been removed from the lake.
The Maritime and Coastguard agency said it appeared to have been an accident.
A spokesperson for the coastguard said: "They were extracted from the vehicle. The coastguard didn't need to launch the lifeboat."
The coastguard spokesperson also said the car was only submerged in about a foot of water.
