A truck that rolled into the water and was completely submerged when it's driver was attempting to load a boat onto its attached trailer was recovered from the Socastee Landing by a tow truck on Tuesday.

A man learned that his truck isn’t nearly as buoyant as his boat on Tuesday in Myrtle Beach.

As he was attempting to load his boat from the water back onto the trailer attached to his Chevy Silverado 1500 at the Socastee Landing boat ramp, the truck slipped out of gear and rolled back into the water, according to eyewitness Jason Black of Myrtle Beach, who filmed its recovery.

The truck and trailer were totally submerged in the Intracoastal Waterway and were retrieved by a tow truck. Black said the emergency brake was engaged but not firmly enough to prevent rollback, and no one was injured in the incident.
