Guy drives Bimmer into lake

In the early morning hours yesterday, a man called emergency services from a bridge in Hangzhou to report that a car was out taking a swim in the city's iconic West Lake. Police say that the driver surnamed Tang drove his car into the lake accidentally while he was distracted with his smartphone.

In the police interview, Tang claimed that he had dropped his phone while playing around with it at the steering wheel of his car. He tried to search for the phone while pulling over, but accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead.
The bumper of the car fell off releasing a fairly big (and very surprised) fish. A crowd of workers came over to take a look.

I love that they pulled a fish out along with the car.

Alright who's the U boat commander? Risky Business.
At least Joel had the good excuse of being distracted by Rebecca De Mornay circa 1983. and he only drowned a Porsche. N4S
