It is almost fascinating to see that the owner decided to take his car this far out into the pond. This could be seriously dangerous as it is a compact hatchback. It is not meant to perform such stunts at all. At one point in the video, the owner is seen standing atop the roof. Since the water is stationary, he doesn’t seem afraid at all.

However, the car is totally stuck in the water and unable to move. Finally, a Hyundai Alcazar is called to rescue the Alto. A long rope is tied to the tail end of the Alto and is pulled out. Since it is a compact car, the SUV doesn’t struggle one bit. As the driver sits inside the car, the water is seen filling the footwell area on the passenger side. Such stunts must not be performed willingly with any car, let alone a small car with no off-roading capabilities.
