CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Thursday afternoon a man left his SUV running while parked on the boat ramp at the Diversion Channel. The SUV slipped out of gear or the emergency brake failed while he was talking on his cell phone.

It happened at the boat ramp just under Interstate 55.

The vehicle rolled down the ramp and into the water and it sank.

Divers were called in and found the SUV. A wrecker pulled it out of the water.

The boat ramp was closed for nearly three hours.
