Man Films His Drive Through the Tsunami [Video]


We’ve seen a lot of devastating tsunami videos. This one, from the Telegraph, ends well, although it’s certainly harrowing: While a man drives on a coastal road, tsunami waves overtake his vehicle. He keeps filming the whole way — without even a scream — which is, to say the least, pretty fucking impressive. Afterward, he told local media “I could do nothing else but keep driving.” (Watch for the rainbow at 13 seconds.)

“Water came up and the car was floating in the water. I was panicked, the water was probably two metres high. If I came out of the car I thought I would be caught in the water as well so I thought I would wait until it had come down.”
