VIERA, FL – An elderly man died after hitting a fire hydrant and then getting sucked into a hole made by the rushing water.

The freak accident happened on Wednesday after 89-year-old Robert Dreyer accidentally hit a fire hydrant on the side of the road.

Police say the collision was minor, but the impact caused water to spew from the hydrant.

Witnesses said Dreyer appeared unhurt when he got out of his car, but the ground had given way because of the rushing water and he dropped straight down into a 5-foot-deep, watery grave.

“There was a divot in the space where the fire hydrant used to be and right adjacent to his driver’s door,” said Channing Taylor with the Florida Highway Patrol. “He fell into that divot”

Witnesses pulled Dreyer out of the water moments later, but he would be pronounced dead after being transported to Viera Hospital. It was his 89th birthday.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating the incident.
