An Istanbul ferry company releases security footage of a dramatic accident that claimed the life of a five-year-old girl last Saturday.
A car is seen falling backwards into the sea - after attempting to board a ferry in northern Istanbul.
Two female passengers managed to swim to the surface.
But the five-year-old and her grandmother had to be rescued by divers.
The child later died in a hospital.
Prosecutors sought the arrest of the captain and two ferry personnel for reckless homicide.
But they have now been released.
