Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Swept Away by Ocean Tides Near Mumbai - Watch Video

The driver of the old white coloured Maruti Suzuki Ertiga went too close to the ocean, failing to move away from tides in time

In a bizarre incident recorded on video near Mumbai, a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga car was swept away by ocean tides in Palghar, some 80 km away from Mumbai, the financial capital of India. Luckily enough, both the occupants of the white coloured old Ertiga got away in time to save themselves from drowning.

While it felt like the strong tides would sweep the Ertiga away completely submerging the MPV, the full video shows that Ertiga got saved somehow and was pulled out using a tractor.

It is being reported that the Ertiga was driven too close to the shoreline and the evening tides were on their full swing. Without fearing for the force of tides, the Ertiga driver kept going close to the water until a strong tide pulled the Ertiga inside.

The driver tried accelerating the car away from the water but to his failure, the car was stuck in the ocean sand. As seen in the video, the passenger of the car escaped unhurt realizing the force of the water. However, the driver kept trying his luck.

It seems like the driver forgot that the Ertiga is not an SUV and doesn’t come with a 4×4 system or big wheels or a powerful engine to pull itself out of the sheer force of ocean tides. After a couple of failed attempts, the driver also ran away leaving the car inside the ocean.

At one time, the tides were about to sweep away the car, complete submerging it. But the latter half of the video shows a tractor trying to pull the car out of the water but with less water level around.

The video does not show if the tractor successfully pulled out the MPV or not, but it failed multiple times doing so. The takeaway message here is not to underestimate the power of nature. Don’t try to cross the river, go near the ocean or drive inside water without a proper car or training.
