The white hatchback car was showed on a streamed video with registration plate number TTP2-7.

It was unclear when did the incident happen.

There were no reports of injuries.

Onlookers can be overheard saying no one was inside the car when it was pulled out of the water.

A car seat with yellow and black colours, spotted on the foreshore close to the where the car was removed, was said to be from the car in question.

The person who streamed the incident provided no further details.

The incident came after a car was pulled from the Tu’imatamoana wharf early this year following police desperate search for a missing man. Police later said at the time the body of the missing man Talanoa Leakona Lemoto was found inside the car.
