Woman dies as car plunges into Lagos lagoon


Tragedy struck in Lagos on Saturday night when a car plunged into the lagoon by Bonny Camp, killing a female passenger.

The ash coloured salon car with Lagos registration number MUS 38 BL was driving out of the Victoria Island axis towards CMS when it skidded off the road and plunged into the Lagoon.

A Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA) response unit arrived the scene immediately after the incident.

An eyewitness said the man, who drove the car, was rescued but the woman was trapped in the car and it took LASEMA officials some time before they could retrieve the car.

The accident comes a day three people were killed when a luxurious bus travelling from Abia State skidded off its track and plunged into a canal in Owode Elede, around Mile 12, also in Lagos.
