Maine firefighters say they had to rescue a New York couple who took a wrong turn and mistakenly drove into the Atlantic Ocean, the AP reports. WMTW-TV reports firefighters were called to the docks in Tremont around 8pm Tuesday after there were reports of two people trapped in a car in the water. Officials say the couple's SUV was in 8 to 10 feet of water after they traveled down a boat ramp into the water. A video shows extremely foggy conditions in the area of the dock. Rescuers were able to pull the couple onto a skiff, and then pulled the SUV back to shore. An ambulance crew evaluated the couple. (More strange stuff stories.)
