The driver of the vehicle was reversing a boat at the Werribee South boat ramp this morning at approximately 2.10am when the vehicle gave way and went into the water with the trailer and boat.

The 24-year-old male driver remained in the vehicle with his foot on the brake until emergency services arrived in an attempt to stop the vehicle from submerging any further.

Upon arrival, Werribee CFA rescued the man from the vehicle who was quite cold at this stage. Ambulance Victoria arrived on scene shortly after to assist.

The vehicle was left at the scene to be recovered later.
