Lagos, Nigeria - Four bodies have been recovered from the wreckage of a car that plunged into a river in Nigeria's southern River State late on Sunday, according to rescuers.
An official of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Umesi Emenike, told journalists that the bodies were recovered Monday, a day after the Toyota Camry car plunged into River Choba, near the state capital, Port Harcourt.
''Rescuers have succeeded in pulling the car out of the Choba river. Four bodies, including one infant with his grand mother, were among those recovered,'' he said.
The driver of the car was said to have swam to safety while others were trapped in the car.
It is not yet known how the car plunged into the river.
