Wrong judgment. Seems he took it for granted that the slush is not so deep :(

So, what the result? hows the engine now? Doupdate us please.

In riverbeds if the silt is wet and you enter you can try as hard as you can to get out but the silt just sucks you in.

The guy had gutts to even try it during the rains.

Hahaha... this has to be the icing!

And do not tell me that this was the first time he is coming across this river, aka, unknow territory...

So, what was the damage to the poor beast?

damn thats wicked! whats the status of the car now? poor guy would have panicked when it started sinking! its pretty much like quick sand when something as heavy as the scorpio gets stuck! atleast he had the presence of mind to close the windows. if that got filled in as well the car would have been a goner!

Nice off the road engine wash! Engine should come clean . It is hilarious. I cannot believe that owners of such good machine can go this way.

Well the owner of the Scorp would be the last one to panic. Its just that it was a wrong time to be at the right place. I guess he exited from the back door.

This was a 4WD Scorp. Engine is all well as he turned the engine off when the flash floods came in.

Interesting. No 4WD logo, no tow hook on the bumper - I thought these were the distinguishing features of the 4WD Scorpio.
