Getting into the water in a car accident is very dangerous. However, there are ways to break free. The seat belts are also central in such cases.
Last Sunday, what most people only know from nightmares and films, came true for a driver on Axenstrasse: he drove his car off the road, broke through the light railing on the pavement, fell 46 meters – and then ended up in Lake Lucerne. There the car and what is believed to be the only occupant sank 182 meters before they reached the bottom of the lake.
