Firetruck Rolls Into White Rock Lake

Firefighters said the air brakes failed, causing the truck to roll into the lake.

Some Dallas firefighters could have used some help Sunday at White Rock Lake.

A ladder truck rolled off an embankment and into the lake when the air brakes on the engine failed.

The department was responding to a technical rescue at the time.

Maybe someone should have walked over and asked these guys for the best way to get the truck out of the lake.

Kidding, kidding.  They used a winch.

We haven't heard yet what damage, if any, was done to the truck.  No injuries were reported in connection with the incident.
