The harrowing ordeal reportedly occurred when the van drove into Honokohau Small Boat Harbor in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, with the woman sitting inside as the Dodge Caravan started to sink.
While the passenger could exit on her own, nearby heroes went into the water to help the driver, who reportedly had difficulties getting out, according to Hawaii News Now.
The entire incident reportedly resulted from a GPS mistake that led the tourists into the body of water rather than to an excursion they had booked.
Witness Christie Hutchinson said the women appeared calm, though the vehicle became totally submerged right after they escaped, underscoring the dire nature of the situation.
“It’s sinking!” one woman can be heard proclaiming as the van went underwater.
Hutchinson said the entire incident unfolded quite quickly.
“I think they just must’ve taken their eyes off the road for a second,” she told Hawaii News Now. “And I think everyone is a bit shocked because we saw this car go straight into the harbor.”
Inside Edition reported the women are “lucky to be alive,” crediting the good Samaritans who helped.
Fortunately, kind people were there to ensure the incident didn’t end in a more dramatic or unfortunate way; everyone involved was reportedly safe and uninjured.
