Feel sad to share this bad news, but this should be brought to light as people need to understand that a free road means driving with more responsibility and not to taste thrills or check a car's capability.

A couple died as their Mercedes went out of control and dived into a pond. They were alive when their car crashed and even came out through the sunroof, but failed to get any help as the car sank with them. It seems neither of them knew how to swim and it's a pity that with so many people around, no one made any effort to save them.

Translation of the source article:

A man and his wife were killed when their Mercedes car plunged into a lake near Ambapur village on the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar highway yesterday afternoon. A video showing Anand Modi and Fanny Modi drowning in the lake has surfaced. In the heart-breaking video of the two drowning, the couple got out of the sunroof of the car and sat on the vehicle and asked for help. Meanwhile, villagers shouted and asked them to go the rear of the vehicle, but both drowned along with the car.

On the Ambapur Highway between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, a Mercedes driver lost control and crashed into Ambapur Lake. As soon as the incident was reported, the residents of the area rushed to the spot and carried out a rescue operation. But both, the husband and wife, drowned in the car and died on the spot. Upon learning of the incident, the police rushed to the spot and conducted an investigation.

While the man's body was found, the search for wife's body continues.

After this tragedy, this young man has been identified as Anand Modi, who lives in Jivrajnagar in Shahibaug. Locals informed the fire brigade that the body of the youth has been found, but the search for the woman is on. The driver had gone to Palanpur according to the reports received and was returning to his home in Ahmedabad. On the way, the car (MH-04-EQ-2400) crashed into a lake on the Adalaj-Koba highway after jumping a bump in Tasalwa in Ambapur village.
