The truck became completely submerged despite rescue efforts in near darkness. Bebe was able to climb out of the truck but 19-year-old Johnathon Gercie and a 14-year-old, both from Alpha, were not.

Bebe was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital-Warren in Phillipsburg for a  fractured vertebrae and other injuries.

The three were returning from night fishing according to WNBC TV.

The truck was pulled from the water on Wednesday morning shortly after dawn according to the Express-Times.
