Yeah 1 ton odd car plus that lifting arm wasn't helping things much. And it's a Mercedes! Volvo could use this for their ad campaign when Mercedes launch their Actros in India, ie, when they do.

the reason it happened was they did not account for the water in the car which caused the truck to tip over.
awesome pic

Whoa! They used a Volvo and the same results? Is this for real? Are they not wise enough to make the same mistake twice? This water body is cursed i'm telling you.

naaaah...that second series of pics is photoshopped! There is no splash as the truck falls and the people and cars in the background are different as well.

Would have been funny though!!

Heyy.... good point Rtech!! your right!

the truck was definitely used to get the car and other truck out... but it didnt fall in, so it could be a volvo ad afterall!

Nice pics Rehaan!!! There should now be a Drag race between..the Mercedes truck and the Volvo ...Guess who will win??
Ofcourse the Volvo...the reason..the Mercedes truck will purposely loose the race..as the Volvo saved it when it jumped in water knowing that it couldnt Swim!! A friend in need is a friend in deed!!! LOL
