A 23-year-old Canadian woman drove her car straight into an Ontario bay earlier this week, after missing the right turn her GPS has instructed her to make.
She drove straight into a boat launch on Georgian Bay, and her vehicle became completely submerged, a local official told ABC News.
It was a “dark and stormy night,” the official said, which made it difficult to see what’s ahead.
Fortunately, the quick-thinking woman was able to roll down her car window before the power went out, and escaped from her car to swim to shore.
The water was almost minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and the woman had to swim 100 feet to get to shore. She then made a call from a local hotel, as her cellphone was in the car.
Andrea Vincze, a local onlooker who photographed the car, said that the boat launch was “pretty wide” and could be easily mistaken for a street.
