Car recovered from bottom of Connecticut River in Chicopee

A car was recovered from the Connecticut River in Chicopee after three months in the water.

Chicopee Police had gotten a call Saturday afternoon from a kayaker who had discovered the car, and officers were able to see it through the water when they arrived to the scene.

Divers went down in the water and found out the car had no occupants, so the department waited until Sunday to pull the car from the water.
