Remarkable images from Norway: after their Tesla ended up in the water, the occupants were rescued thanks to a sauna boat that rushed to the scene. The car was able to be pulled out of the water by emergency services.
In Oslo, the Tesla driver unintentionally drove into a fjord with icy water. Video footage shows the occupants quickly crawling out of the car and taking a seat on the roof. They had no choice but to wait for help. Fortunately, it came soon, thanks to people who had rented a floating sauna.
Just after the people are helped out of the water, you see the car dive further into the water. “One of the guests walked up to me and said the car was sinking,” said Nicholay Nordal, who drove the sauna boat, in the Norwegian newspaper VG. “So I sailed there at full speed. With the help of two guests we got them out of the water. They were then able to warm up in the sauna.”
“They saved our lives,” the Tesla driver said afterwards. He thought his car was in park mode when he drove into the water. “That was a terrible feeling, ending up in the water.”
