GERMAN MAN LISTENS TO HIS GPS, DRIVES CAR INTO RIVER
Given the way this guy takes orders, you have to think his wife is loving life.
According to The Local, three German men probably wished they had carpooled with somebody else after the guy behind the wheel of their car took the advice of his GPS and drove the vehicle into the largest river in northern Germany at a ferry terminal in the town of Bleckede.
Authorities said it’s “pretty obvious where the terminal ends and the water begins,” and there are even signs warning drivers to stop because the Elbe River lies ahead. Nonetheless, this driver kept his foot on the gas and drove straight into the water because his GPS unit “neglected to tell him that the ferry was still on the other side of the river.”
But let’s be honest: It shouldn’t have to.
All four men were able to open their doors and swim to safety, but they were all checked for hypothermia at a local hospital due to the chilly currents of the Elbe this time of year. No word if the driver was also checked for a brain.
