Blas Simon, house owner said to Fox 13, “I was in the kitchen cooking lunch, and it almost sounded like it was a plane that landed in my yard.” He added, “I looked and you could see a massive splash. I ran out to see if he was OK, and he was climbing out of the sunroof.”
He further said, “The car’s sunroof was the only thing above water in my 5.5-feet deep pool. Though no one was hurt, I had been trimming the pants in the yard about an hour earlier.”
The post has so far received 165 comments and 203 shares. One user wrote, “I’ve been driving for 28 years and never once have I mistaken the gas for the brake.” While the other commented, “Gotta be drunk to go that far and end up in a pool. Know how I know? Guy was drunk when he parked in my pool.”
