SUV sinks in New Jersey beach as owner tries to save it – VIDEO

For an “Instagram worthy” photo, he parked his beloved car close to the sea – a decision he would soon regret

It should have been an imposing picture. A young driver drove his shiny white land rover to the sea at the Island Beach State Park in New Jersey. The 20-year-old hobby photographer wanted to put his favorite car in the right light.

These plans were soon thrown overboard, when the off-road vehicle was stuck in the sand.

Christopher Gillich and his wife Megan happened to be witnesses of the desperate rescue attempt and recorded the sheet metal drama on video.

The Land Rover had already dug into the sand to the ground. The water came nearer and nearer until the alarmed towing service had finally uncovered the car, the waves were already flying over the vehicle.

“The car is water proof!”

As Gillich described in a second Facebook post including video (below), the driver of the off-road vehicle came quite cocky.

The waves had already been beaten several times over the vehicle, before the man finally found it.

The helpers advised him to sell the car soon before it began to rustle through the salt water. But the accident did not know anything about it: “It’s all right, the car is water-proof,” the ignorant gate replied. The model was a Limited Edition, which he would certainly not sell.

Although the engine made strange noises, the man did not let the man stop him and dart with the all-wheel.

At least the man comes without notice, because as owner of a fishing license he is allowed to ride on the beach with off-road vehicles.
