A wheelchair-bound man was rescued from the Motel 6 swimming pool Tuesday afternoon.

Reports of a possible drowning came in at about 3:45 p.m., and the man was rushed to first Petaluma Valley Hospital, then Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

As of Wednesday morning, he was able to speak and told Petaluma police that he accidentally drove himself into the pool when he bumped the wheelchair’s control device.
