Maybe spring for the amphibious model next time.
A 22-year-old Indian man, apparently fuming that he didn’t receive a new Jaguar from his parents, pushed his brand-new BMW into a nearby river, where it sank.
Dramatic video footage shot Friday shows the white Beamer slowly drifting down a river in the Northern Indian city of Haryana, reported India Today.
“When the youth was plunging the high-end BMW car into the river, he also made a video and put it on social media, a police official told the Indo-Asian News Service.
The car soon got stuck on a clump of tall grass before the man attempted to retrieve it, reported BBC News.
Video shows several men attempting to pull the car back on to land with ropes.
The man, identified only as Akash, allegedly drove the vehicle to the embankment of the river and let it slide into the water, said police on Saturday.
Officials said no charges have been field against Akash, who they claim has a mental deficiency and is undergoing treatment, reported the Deccan Herald.
“Akash was unhappy with his father for not buying him (a) Jaguar,” police said in a statement. “He deliberately pushed (the) luxury vehicle BMW into the river.”
Panicked officials feared people were in the vehicle as it bobbed in the water, which prompted the save attempt.
“We thought there may be somebody in the car but when those engaged in the rescue operation reached the vehicle they found none inside,” said one unidentified villager.
BMWs cost about the equivalent of $49,000 in India while Jaguars go for about $60,000, according to the BBC.
