(CNN) - Oops! A driver in Canada took an unexpected swim last week.

Police blame it on foggy weather and her focus on her GPS.

The 23-year-old woman says she was following the GPS instructions while driving in the dark late Thursday.

She drove down a boat launch, apparently took a wrong turn and plunged right into Little Tub Harbour. The woman was able to roll down her window, get out and swim to shore.

The car, meanwhile completely sank.

A tow truck pulled it out the next morning.

Except for being cold and wet, the woman was not hurt.
