How the did he pass his driving test and still end up in the canal?
Mr. Zhang from China passed his drivers test and ten minutes later he ended up in the canal. According to Sick Chirpse he was distracted by all of the congratulation messages he received for passing the test.
Zhang said (via Metro):
While I was driving, I tried to grab my phone and read some messages while two people were in front of me on the bridge. I became nervous and turned left suddenly. Luckily, the car floated for a while.
I couldn’t open the driver’s door so I had to kick open the door on the other side. Otherwise, I may never have got out as my hand was dislocated in the chaos.
A few people near by helped him out of the water, he was lucky they were there
