According to media outlet Verdens Gans (VG), the driver said he thought the car was in park mode. Parked at the edge of the fjord, he pressed the accelerator pedal… and the car rushed into the water, a few meters away! “A horrible feeling”according to the driver.
Occupants saved by a floating sauna
Fortunately, the occupants were not injured despite this impressive incident. The images filmed by the witnesses show them taking refuge on the roof of their vehicle, just before it sank.
Also unexpectedly, they were rescued by… “a floating sauna”, said the police. Some of these machines are available for rental, mobile and motorized. The “captain” of the sauna, Nicholay Nordahl, tells VG that he “put full throttle towards the people who were getting out of the car”.
The latter was finally recovered by a recovery truck a few hours later. Enough to give an astonishing story to tell.
