Driving lesson tragedy: Two feared dead after car plunges into lake – NZ Herald

A husband was teaching his wife how to drive when the car accelerated into a Christchurch lake last night.

The couple’s bodies are feared to be in the submerged vehicle at Halswell’s Westlake Reserve.

Avneel Ram had dived in to try and reach his wife, Sheetal, when their car slipped into the water.

A large group of friends and family of the couple, who have a 5-month-old daughter, are at the lake this morning.
