Dramatic Rescue of Polish Racers Trapped in Renault Clio that Flipped into a Lake


Video footage of a chilling incident that serves as a reminder of the dangers faced by racing drivers has surfaced online.

The accident took place in Poland during the first stage of the 2012 Mazowiecki Rally when a Renault Clio racecar crashed and flipped over landing into a pond, roof first trapping both the driver, Patrick Osowiecki and his navigator, Maciej Wrona.

The two men were under water tied up in their racing bucket seats.

Luckily for them, even though there were no officials around, rally fans came to their rescue almost immediately saving them from the worst. You can watch the dramatic footage in the video after the jump.

That's for sure and that's the best video I've seen for a long time from Poland, but yet this woman comments were a bit annoying (when not stupid who understand, knows why).

Another example of why I never quite lose my faith in humanity.
