A helicopter was then called in and another body was then found in the river.

After shipping on the river was then stopped, further searches by the local fire brigade found the car with two more people found inside.

A road runs down to the river where a ferry runs between the towns of Bergambacht and Streefkerk on either side of the river.

On possible explanation for the tragedy is that the car’s sat nav may have mistaken the road as leading to a bridge or tunnel.
