Body found in car in Lake Erie

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland fire department says the body of a man was found inside a car submerged near the boat ramp at a Lake Erie park.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/1cVFvHY ) reports a 911 caller reported the car in the water Thursday morning at Wildwood Park, northwest of downtown.

A fire crew used winches to pull the car from about 6 feet of water, and then found the body inside.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is trying to find out how the car got in the water. The medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death. The victim's name wasn't released.
