Sports car pulled from Abilene's Kirby Lake

ABILENE, Texas - It was a sad sight if you were car's owner.

The owner of a Mazda Miata told authorities he was fishing last week when he noticed his sports car slipping into the water at Kirby Lake.

He wasn't able to stop it -- and the car spent the weekend underwater.

Monday, divers hooked a cable onto the car, which was about 150 from shore, and a tow truck pulled it out of the lake.

They actually had to use a sonar device to find the car in the lake.
