Witness Louise de Jager contacted the Busselton Mail to say she was down at the Abbey Boat Ramp on Geographe Road about 11am on Wednesday when she saw a four-wheel-drive swimming in the ocean just off the boat ramp.

She said she understands waves caused the car to slip off the ramp as it was taking a boat out of the water.

An industrial tow was used to pull the car out of the sea.

This is the third four-wheel-drive to take to the water in the South West within a month after extraordinary footage of two four-wheel-drives rolling around in the surf at Hamelin Bay emerged in June 2016.

Emergency services were called recover two utes marooned on the beach but by the time they arrived the utes were rolling around in the drink and couldn’t be “rescued”.

“Unfortunately the tide was a bit higher than it was when the drivers left their vehicles the night before and we couldn’t help without putting our own vehicles at risk,” a Facebook post by the Augusta-Magaret River State Emergency Services read.
