The vehicle broke through a barricade of thick upright posts at the end of a road in Lake Lewisville Park, said Richard Douglass, a spokesman for the Lewisville Police Department. Investigators on Monday looked for skid marks or other evidence that the driver braked before the car entered the water late Sunday. Evidence of alcohol was found in the vehicle, but investigators hadn't yet determined if it played a role in the accident.

Witnesses said Martinez was hysterical when he escaped from the vehicle late Sunday at Lake Lewisville and had to be restrained from diving back into the water for his children. Police said the victims were Martinez's wife, Augustina Martinez, 21; an 8-month-old girl; a 19-month-old boy; the driver and his 22-year-old wife; and a girl believed to be aged 13 to 15. Kayaker, rescue divers drown in river ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. — Two fire department divers and the kayaker they were trying to rescue drowned in a creek at a state park near Pittsburgh. The 23-year-old man struck a submerged log, flipping his kayak Sunday in Slippery Rock Creek at McConnell's Mill State Park, police said. The kayaker, whose name was not immediately released, became trapped underwater by a fast current. Anthony Murdick and Scott Wilson, both 25, of the Unionville Volunteer Fire De­ partment, drowned while trying to save the man. Their bodies were recovered about a half-mile downstream, police said. The divers entered the water without scuba equipment. A line was tethered between the two men and a longer safety rope was connected to shore. "We believe the tether line that held them together got caught on something and pulled them both down," said Fire Chief Mark Lauer. Would-be rescuers die off Florida beach NAVARRE BEACH, Fla. — Twice in one week, would-be rescuers died trying to save children from drowning off the Florida Panhandle. Both children were rescued by other beachgoers. Cecil Cumberland Jr., 66, apparently drowned Sunday while going to the aid of his granddaughter, who was struggling in rough surf at Navarre Beach. Christopher Chapman, 44, died last Tuesday when he tried to rescue a 10-year-old boy at Pensacola Beach. In a separate incident Sunday 50-year-old Thomas Tutten apparently drowned while try­ ing to retrieve a raft for a group of children on a St. Augustine beach on the Atlantic Coast. Girl attacked in her bed by police dog JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A 10- year-old girl was bitten by a police dog after officers who believed an alarm had gone off in the home put the dog in through a window. The address given to police by the alarm company was wrong, police said. The girl, Devin Batts, was at home with her sister and broth­ ers Friday whUe their mother was at work. She was lying in her bedroom when the dog came through the house. "We didn't hear anything," Devin said. "I just saw a dog jump on the bed and grab rtiy leg and drag me off the bed." Devin had to have eight stitches to close the wound on her leg. K-9 supervisor Sgt. J.R Butler said officers had knocked and called at the door before putting the dog inside a high, open window, but there was no response. The children's mother, Lavora Felton, had already left for her job with a janitorial service. The children are told not to answer the door when she is gone. "My kids don't want to live there anymore," said Felton. "They are traumatized." Butler said a K-9 officer hoisted the dog, Taz, through a win- " dow'and told the dog to lie still inside the house. Butler said the dog responded to movement in the house before the officer could get inside. "Procedurally, I don't know what we could have done differently," Butler said.
