Some people may have seen a ding on their door, or some dirt on their rugs, after handing their car keys over to a valet.

However, they probably never saw their car bobbing in the water.

That’s what happened Saturday to a Bonita Springs man whose car ended up in the waters off Fort Myers Beach when the valet forgot to put the car in park, and it rolled off the dock.

Video shot by a witness shows the car in about 15 feet of water after the owner gave the keys to a valet before going on a casino cruise, according to WBBH-TV in Fort Myers.

Divers pulled the car out of the water, and the casino paid for the damages.
