A two-year-old is at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center Monday night after being trapped for almost an hour in a submerged vehicle in Bingham County.

The Bingham County Sheriff’s Office says two parents and two kids were in an SUV in the Rose Pond area when they went off the road and into some water.

The parents and one of the children got out, the 2-year-old was trapped. Divers from the sheriff’s office were called in to rescue the two-year-old, who was taken to EIRMC. Their condition is unknown at this time but the sheriff’s office is hopeful the cold water will help in their recovery.

The other three were taken to Bingham Memorial Hospital.

No other information will be released Monday night.
