Firefighters in China had to rescue a driver who became stranded after trying to clean his million-yuan SUV in a river to avoid paying for a car wash.
The man had driven his Land Rover into what was a shallow river outside Chengdu on Wednesday when floodgates were opened upstream, releasing a wall of water.
The man fled for higher ground and called police after the vehicle became half submerged in the rapids.
Rescue crews arrived to find him stranded on an islet in the middle of the river.
Using ropes and a harness, firefighters walked the man to safety through the swift, knee-deep water in what was a 10-minute rescue, firefighters told media.
The crew also pulled the soaked SUV from the river.
The man later told rescuers he had the brilliant idea of washing the car in the river in order to save 20 yuan ($2.50) for a proper car wash.
