WAUKESHA -- A 2017 Buick Verano was discovered last Wednesday at the bottom of a swimming pool in Waukesha.

According to the Waukesha Police Department, officers were sent to 2320 Parklawn Dr. around 7:30 p.m. to investigate the report of a vehicle in a swimming pool.

Police say the driver and his fianc√© pulled into their parking stall near the pool.  The driver decided to pull further forward toward the concrete curb, and accidentally hit the accelerator, driving down an embankment, through a chain link fence, and into the pool.

Both people were able to get out of the pool and were unharmed. 

As of Tuesday, the pool still needed to be drained. A crane will need to be used to remove the vehicle, police say.
