Car in pond

Tuesday 11th August 2015 – 8.10pm – Chris Kowalik.


A man who had driven into a pond was so calm, he sat in his car smoking his pipe as it filled up with water.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a farm in Loxley shortly before 2.50pm today.

An advanced community paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and an ambulance crew attended. Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service also attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The man who is in his eighties had gone to the farm to fish in its lake. After his car ended up in the water, he smoked his pipe and chatted to the farmer who went into the lake in his waders. Firefighters carried him from his car back onto land.

“He wasn’t hurt or even cold but ambulance crews removed his clothing to ensure he didn’t get cold and he was driven home in the ambulance.”
