Images of the scene showed divers recovering their vehicle from the 50 foot deep canal late on Tuesday evening. The car was taken off the scene on Wednesday morning.

Police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta said: “Divers have located the vehicle, immersed in the Government Cut area near Fisher Island. The vehicle was taken out of the water and investigators discovered two deceased females. “

Fisher Island was named the richest zip code in the United States in 2019.

It is a 216-hectare island that was once home to celebrities such as media magnate Oprah Winfrey, actor Mel Brooks, retired tennis star Boris Becker and Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova.

It has around 700 families who own a house or an apartment, but only a small proportion of them are actually there at some point, according to Forbes.

That’s because Fisher Island is primarily a holiday destination for the super rich, who only spend a few weeks or months in a row.

The ferry service takes people from the MacArthur Causeway over Government Cut to the one million dollar houses for Biscayne Bay.
