The fire department said rescue crews located the car in the Geropotamos river on Monday, with all four people still inside. The four — a young married couple, the wife's sister and her mother — had reportedly been returning from a wedding celebration nearby late on Saturday night when their car was swept away by floodwaters. Two calls were made to emergency services from the car at around 1 a.m. Sunday, but rescue crews were unable to reach them in time despite a massive search operation.
