Community Saves Car From Falling Into Ocean

Helpful locals in Instanbul have saved a tourist’s car from falling off an edge into the Bosphorus, a strait that separates Asia and Europe, by sitting on the front of the car until a crane arrived.

According to eyewitness accounts, the car began to slowly roll backwards towards the sea. That’s when spectators immediately took action by jumping onto the hood of the car, preventing the vehicle from falling into strait.

Locals Keeping The Car Balanced To Avoid Catastrophe

Reports from local news sources say that the tourists were visiting a museum on the European side of Istanbul. When the tourists parked, they forgot to secure the rental car’s handbrake.

The fire department eventually arrived at the scene with a lifting crane and managed to pull the car away from the edge. Nobody was injured in the event.
