Driver keeps calm and calls police after car plunges into river

Keep calm and call the police.

That was what a driver did after his car veered off the road and plunged into a river in Nanjing’s Liuhe district on Sunday afternoon, news portal ifeng.com reported Monday.

The driver, who reportedly lost control of his car, managed to climb out of the sinking vehicle and called the police.

Surprisingly, he stayed calm throughout the incident and was seen sitting or standing on the top of his car, the report said. 

Later, a crane arrived and lifted the man to safety, uninjured. The car was subsequently hoisted out of the river, the report said.
