ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Poor advice from a car's GPS unit led a man to drive off the ferry in Whittier and straight into the small boat harbor.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the man and his two dogs were fine, but a cat inside a carrier drowned.

The unnamed man had just arrived in Alaska from the Lower 48. He drove off the ferry but after about 400 feet, the GPS unit in the man's car told him to make a hard right turn.

Whittier public safety director Dave Schofield says that was a misdirection, and it led the man down the ramp where people launch boats.

The car was fully submerged when a man jumped in the water and broke the window open, allowing the driver and his dogs to escape.
