Oklahoma - Five people remain in an Oklahoma hospital being treated for broken bones and hypothermia after a dramatic water rescue.

Investigators say an SUV with eight passengers plunged off a highway bridge Thursday and fell 80 feet into icy water.

Emergency crews braved bone chilling temperatures to try and reach the passengers who were stranded for two hours in the submerged vehicle.

Crews were able to bring six people to safety.

Two died on the scene and one died on the way to the hospital.
