Rope Hits Boat Engine Sending Driver into Lake

Occurred on July 8, 2018 / Kropswolde, Netherlands

Info from Licensor: "We were dragging the tube behind the boat and the moment we went for a corner the rope hits the engine and I get catapulted into the water together with the engine and my phone in my hand. Quite an experience!

It happened on the Zuidlaardermeer in Groningen, Netherlands. The engine drops to the bottom of the lake, but it's quite shallow so I could reach it and drag it out with a friend. After rebuilding it, it worked again."
