ABC News' Alana Abramson reports:
Two men and a woman dove in to a California estuary Sunday to rescue a family, including two children, trapped in a vehicle about to submerge.
Andy Goodwin, Erik Schorken and Schorken's family were driving along the estuary in Oakland, Calif., on their way back from a Father's Day lunch when they noticed a woman frantically waving her hands and pointing towards the water.
"I said to my wife, 'I think someone might have gone into the water,'" Schorken told ABC News. "But no one was stopping."
Then they saw an ambulance, so Schorken decided to pull over and see what was going on.
It turned out the ambulance was there for another matter, but the car's occupants noticed people were trapped in the water, so Schorken, Goodwin and Tracey McCormick, who was also driving by the estuary at the time, jumped in and swam out to the scene.
"This car was 60 degrees up in the air; it was going nose down into the water," Schorken said. "I just kept swimming out there."
