Car plunges into pond in Downers Grove

July 28, 2011 (DOWNERS GROVE, Ill.)

It happened just off Butterfield Road near the Doubletree Suites Hotel.

The fire department says divers rescued the driver and he was taken to a hospital in critical condition. No one else was in the car.

Four firefighters and two police officers who helped in the rescue also got checked out at a hospital as a precaution because they are not sure what's in the pond.
