The flooding that's been occurring at Oxbow Park almost turned deadly Friday night on June 20.

Late that night, Park Technician, Tim Buri, was doing his rounds.  Every night Tim takes a drive around the park to make sure that everything looks as it should.  That particular night proved to be different than the rest.  

After his rounds he heard voices somewhere out in the park.  He climbed up into his truck and followed the sounds.  He later found the source of the voices, but the sight that he saw was not what he originally expected.  

"I could only see taillights," Buri said.

The two girls Buri heard reportedly missed a turn and had driven the front end of their convertible Mustang directly into the flooded Zumbro River. According to sheriff's reports, the driver was 18 and the passenger was 17.

By the time that Buri got to them, the car had already started bobbing up and down into the rushing waters.
