A good Samaritan heard the collision and witnessed the legs of the victim sticking out of the window.

The witness then jumped into the water and grabbed the victim who was taken to a local hospital where he was said to be critical but stable.

The car was completely submerged and will take some time to properly remove it, officials said.
