Fortunately driver Dan Hill was able to get out in time.

The car was later winched out of the water by Don Herman, who runs a local salvage company.

"I've never pulled out a Cadillac Escalade," he told Inside Edition. "That was a first."

Hill recalled watching his beloved vehicle sink into the water.

"You watch your poor truck sinking like that and you just want to grab onto it and hold it up," he said. "But it's 6,000 pounds, you ain't going to be able to hold it on the ice."

It was not the only harrowing rescue over the weekend in Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe, California, as a snowboarder found himself buried in snow following a 30-foot fall.
