This is the moment a car is slowly towed out of a family swimming pool after a teen motorist lost control and drove into the water.

The incident took place in the US state of Colorado on 15th July.

The teenage driver, whose name is not disclosed, has received a citation from the police after driving into a family’s swimming pool.

The West Metro Fire Department and Ace Towing were called to the scene to remove the car from the pool.

The police said that no one, including the teen driver and a passenger in the car, was injured in the incident.

The fire brigade’s dive team had to first attach the car to the tow rig, which took between 10 and 15 minutes to connect the chains to several positions on the vehicle.
