A day at Lake Bryan did not go as expected for one local resident.

Scuba divers were called in to help retrieve his F-250 pickup after it rolled into the lake Sunday evening.

It's unclear if the driver was trying to launch his jet ski or load it on to his trailer.

However, instead of having his vehicle in park, it was in neutral.

Plus, since the windows were up, the pick-up floated farther from shore.

Pressure eventually forced the windows to break, submerging the vehicle.

A team from Paradise Scuba in College Station located the full submerged vehicle, hooked chains to it and helped retrieve it for the owner.
