LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A truck ended up in the water at the Punta Rassa boat ramp Friday evening. It happened just after 6pm.  The son of the driver of the truck

says his father was backing the boat into the water when the trailer went off of the ramp.  The truck slid on some algae on the ramp and ended up in the

water. The driver was the only person in the truck and managed to escape without injuries. It took crews more than 2 hours to pull the truck out of the water.

 The Coast Guard is investigating.
