Poop for thought: Burning BMW saved by sewage truck
Thought you were having a crappy day?
Let us set the scene: you are in your beloved BMW X6 of which you spent your hard earned dollars on, and are cruising down a road in Samara, Russia.
Suddenly your vehicle's engine catches fire and the sticky situation becomes both life and wallet-threatening. Are you going to watch your vehicle burn or call for help? The owner felt that there was not enough time for a firetruck to arrive and instead decided to call upon the help of a passing Kamaz sewage truck. Yes, the truck sprayed sewage waste to extinguish the fire. You can view the rescue (or tragedy) in the clip below.
Did it work in the end? Definitely! Was there poop on the scene? Probably. Did the owner regret his decision? Possibly, it is unknown to as whether or not the vehicle is still roadworthy but hopefully it is.
Note that nobody was injured during the event... except the bacteria that were incinerated when thrown into the fire. This event from two weeks ago reminds us to ensure that our vehicles are in a safe and drivable condition with engine bays free of hazardous debris.
What would you have done in this situation?
