Obviously if you find yourself in a sinking car, I imagine the first response will involve quite a lot of panic – and not much rational thinking. This is understandable, but if you’re to stand any chance of survival, you’ll need to get your head straight and carry out some pretty important instructions. Check out the video below which outlines how to save your bacon from a watery grave.
As you’ve seen in the video, a standard windshield is designed to be hard to break. This of course is great news in most circumstances, but not when you’re watching the sun vanish from the bottom of the canal. Bit dark? Apologies, but it’s true. Thankfully though if you hit your window glass in just the right spot, it will shatter because it’s tempered glass. Check out the video on the next page where we actually have a sinking car for your viewing pleasure (or pain).
This is the moment that loads of cars started to sink into Lake Geneva. In the footage, one of the owners is actually trying to fish his car out of the water (unsuccessfully I might add).
My advice for the owners of these cars… probably don’t park your flash motor on a frozen lake. I know it’s not rocket science, but some people obviously need reminding that cars are heavy, and that ice breaks easily.
