A pickup truck launching a motorboat into a lake in Illinois was caught on camera as it slid into the water and sank during a live news report.
The local news was on scene reporting on a proposed project to build a second artificial lake in the area as an economic development program as the white GMC Sierra pickup backed down the ramp and the driver got out to release the boat it was towing from its trailer. The truck can then be seen sliding into the water itself and taking just 25-seconds to become fully submerged. Luckily no one was in the truck at the time. The city is now investigating the incident to determine exactly what happened and if any changes needed to be made to the launch.
