Rumble / Dash Cam FootageIt doesn't matter what kind of car you drive, how experienced you are, or how badly you need to get across a road because when the road is flooded, forget it. The Sydney telecom worker’s dash cam captured the incredible moment when a man is driving through heavy rain in Southern Queensland when he accidentally drives into a flooded river. One moment he is cruising along the road, chatting to a mate on the phone. The next, he is in a river.

There was not much he could have done to avoid the accident. We can see that out of the blue he comes over the ridge, face-to-face with a road flooded by a rising river. He slams the brakes, but it is too late to stop his car from ploughing into the waters. His car is swept off the road and comes to rest against a tree.

The tree is just a lucky circumstance since it stopped the car from being washed into the main river and kept the car stable. As soon as his car skids into the river, it almost immediately begins to float. The tires squeal and all of a sudden the water is over the car’s windscreen.

Despite the colorful language, this man remained calm and didn’t panic as he hung up the phone, recounting his misfortune to his friend in real time. Lucky for him, the result could have been much worse.
