After the vehicle was recovered using a cable winch, the electric car was loaded into the container with the crane and brought to a secure location. The Tesla hadn't burned - so it didn't have to be flooded. Since damage to the battery and thus a possible fire could not be ruled out, it was decided that the vehicle should remain in the container for at least 72 hours.
If the Tesla * does catch fire, the container can be flooded. Control of the vehicle is monitored by the local fire department .
