The 22-year-olds could not escape from their Russian-made Niva as it sank, and they drowned on the vehicle’s back seat.
The school physical education teacher and his girlfriend had earlier driven to the lake in Volograd region, but worried relatives reported them missing when they failed to return.
The couple were named as Evgeny Chernov and Yana Kryuchkova.
‘The car was lifted out of the lake and the bodies of the young people were found on the back seat,’ said
Andrey Fedotov, an official of the Russian Investigative Committee.
Detectives say the couple were ‘making love on the back seat when the car was parked near the lake’, according to local reports.
