A man in Poland followed his GPS' directions so faithfully he drove his Mercedes minivan into a lake.
According to reports, the man's GPS device has not been updated in a while, and was showing the man-made lake as a usable road - which it once had been.
This was not deliberate. The man was simply trying to get from Point A to Point B. But instead of relying upon his eyes, the man placed absolute faith in the disembodied voice emanating from his dashboard navigation system.
Piotr Smolen, a police spokesman in Glubczyce, Poland, told GPS Daily that the driver was not under the influence of alcohol. We almost wish he was, but fortunately, he and his two passengers escaped the incident unharmed, just soggy.
As the Star reports, "When rescuers arrived, the three were clinging to the roof of the minivan, which was nearly submerged. No word if the GPS was still gurgling directions: 'Climb Out Window Now. Swim To Safety In Two Seconds. Trudge Left Onto Dry Land In Three Metres. You Have Not Arrived.'"
