Car plunges into the lagoon from 3rd Mainland bridge

I got a few mails from people who said they witnessed the accident and a few others have sent in photos. They are saying a Toyota Sienna plunged into the UNILAG lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge this morning. Ilaje fishermen around the area gathered for a rescue operation and managed to bring one person out alive.

No word yet from the FRSC. More details later...More photos after the cut...

Chei, could have been caused by over speeding. Driving on the 3rd MB is like competition, everybody wants to overtake everybody.

You are a fool asking for the SUV. Don't u know it has sinked already.

Some people on this blog have serious issues with 'information', they are so information-disoriented that all they do is read LIB without getting full information about an issue from national newspapers or tv stations....LIB is only a blog, when the blogger puts information up, it's an expression of her own opinion on the events. If you need full info, check the dailies or at least listen to the news. If all you do in your life is complain about situations, you will not achieve any progress....(if you like, hurl insults at me, it's your job anyways)

The lone passenger flagged his hands and this alerted sailors, divers and fishermen. He was rescued and taken to the hospital after drinking so much water. He was however resuscitated timely and gave his wife's phone details and home address. We bless God.
