State police dive team sinks new wreck at Brownstone Park

During the second week of June, the Connecticut State Police Dive Team conducted training exercises at Brownstone Park in Portland, Conn. They were checking out a new dive helmet for their surface supplied air system.

While at Brownstone the dive team raised the Nissan pickup that was one of the underwater attractions at the park since its beginning. Using 1000 lb. and 2000 lb. lift bags, they moved the pickup truck to the beach area.

They brought a Cadillac Eldorado with 20 inch “bling” wheels in on a flatbed wrecker, and sunk it in the pickup truck’s place. Out with the old, and in with the new! It is now a permanent underwater attraction and joins the school bus, airplane and boats that were already in place at Brownstone. Check it out on your next dive at the park.
