#1 Any hopes are futile, maybe a few bones, but not likely.

#2 Depends on water temp, oxygen, whether the vehicle is closed up. Article doesn't say but if it was a DUCW (The DUKW (colloquially known as Duck)) then not much chance as it is usually an open cargo compartment.

Don't know of any other amphibious trucks besides the DUKW. Rode in one at Wisconsin Dells. Each vehicle is named after one or another amphibious invasion. Can't see them in a storm for long, especially loaded down with what you need to fight for very long. OTOH, is Lake Garda big enough to generate dangerous waves?
