Madeira Beach, Florida -- An SUV has been recovered from the Gulf near John's Pass after hours of effort.
Beach goers got a view they never expected on their vacation.
"It's a story I can look back and tell the people back in Layfette," said vacationer Eric Benoit. "I woke up on the beach and there was a car in the water."
"Maybe a shark or a whale, but not a vehicle in the ocean," said Jerry Little. "It was amazing," said Jerry Little.
