Lost and Found by wchild Lost and Found by wchild
 
Today a man fell in this yacht harbour pool with his car for some reason not yet known. The fire department was able to rescue him and take him to the nearby hospital. At the same time the divers found also another car from the pool. That car and its driver were reported missing almost a year ago, on December 2nd 2011. The driver was still inside his car today. Searching him used to be 'big news' in my hometown this year. Both cars entered the pool on the left side of this photograph, where the row of streetlights end. Somehow after hearing they found him there I felt I needed to go there and pay my respects somehow. Through means of photography in this case.

News coverage in local newspaper, only in Finnish though: [link]

The story makes the shot so much more eery. ... it's a sad story, but I am glad to read they could rescue the driver this year.

True. As a matter a fact that later driver died in the hospital the next day.

Kaunis kuva ja surullinen tarina tuntuvat kulkevan usein samaan paikkaan.

Niin on. Ehkä koskettavampia tapauksia valottaa kennolle enemmän tunteella?.. ;)

Thanks a lot. I just read some news that the man who drove there yesterday had also died in the hospital today. So two casualties total. Now the town authorities are planning some traffic modifications so that you can't just drive straight and end up in the sea as it is now: [link]

Oli kyllä kaikenkaikkiaan hämärä juttu... Papan omaisille tietysti hyvä asia, että vainaja löytyi. Pääsivät epätietoisuudesta, että mitähän tapahtui. Elävänä varmasti ei kukaan enää uskonut miestä löytävänsä.

(Pakko kysyä, että helisivätkö nuo jäähileet? Muistan, kun aikanaan Kotkassa asuessani ihmettelin iltamyöhällä aallonmurtajalla käppäillessäni, että mitkä ihmeen tiu'ut täällä helkkyvät. Pienen tutkailun jälkeen selvisi, että pienenpienet jäälautat kilkattivat toisiaan vasten aaltojen mukana.)

Joo. Häntä etsittiin alkuvuodesta sieltä täältä, mm. juuri tuostakin vedestä, mutta turhaan. Muutama viikko sitten esim. valokuvauskurssillani kävimme siinä laiturilla ihan tuon uppamispaikan vieressä. Enpä arvannut Peugeotin ja miehen olevan siinä vieressä. Hyvä, että tapaus selvisi.

Jäät eivät helisseet, oli niin tyyntä. Olen joskus kuullut sitä helinää alkutalvesta, kun on ohutta aallokon rikkomaa jäätä patjana rantaa vasten.

Ne ikuisiksi arvoituksiksi jäävät katoamistapaukset ovat kyllä helvetillisiä omaisille. Vaikka järki sanoo, ettei se ihminen takaisin tule, toivo elää kuitenkin.

Kaikenlaista saattaa sattua, silloin aikanaan Turussahan menivät ne varusjantterit autolla satama-altaaseen ja hukkuivat.

Mutta juu, sisämaan asukille se jäiden helinä oli kyllä hippasen hämäävä kokemus: kiliseekö korvien välissä vai mikä on... :D

Näin on. Tänään kuulin vielä, että ne sukeltajat nostivat eilen ENSIN tuon vuoden vedessä olleen auton luullen sen olleen se eilen uponnut; samea vesi ja huono näkyvyys. Vasta auton noustua pintaan sen huomattiinkin olevan tämä kadoksissa ollut Peugeot, ja siellä ruumis sisällä. Vasta sen jälkeen löytyi se eilen uponnut auto. Huh.

Kävin muutama viikko ihan siinä kohdalla kuvaamassa mistä ne autot on menneet sinne veteen. Enpä arvannut mitä on 5 metrin päässä..
