Woman follows GPS, drives into Canadian lake

0517 car into lakeTobermory, Ontario, Canada (CNN) — A driver in Canada took an unexpected swim.

Police blamed it on foggy weather and her focus on her GPS.

The 23-year-old woman said she was following the GPS instructions while driving in the dark late Thursday.

She apparently took a wrong turn, drove down a boat launch, and plunged right into little Tub Harbour.

The woman was able to roll down her window, get out and swim to shore. The car, meanwhile completely sank.

A tow truck pulled it out the next morning.

Except for being cold and wet, the woman was not hurt.
