Genesee County Dive Team pulls cars out of Flint Lake Park

The first car the dive team pulled out of the water was a Buick.

The Genesee County Dive Team is helping to clean up a Flint park near Pierson Road.

The Flint Lake Park is a former amusement park that has been abandoned for decades, and now the Genesee County Parks Department is hoping to revitalize the area.

Today, the dive team began removing debris and old cars from the body of water.

Just after 12 p.m. the dive team pulled the first car, a Buick, from the lake.

City officials believe there are at least a half dozen cars in the water.
