Watch as hapless BMW driver breaks down after driving through flooded road in a CONVERTIBLE | The Sun

A HAPLESS BMW driver broke down after driving through a flooded road in his convertible, footage shows.

The motorist also left the huge puddle of water with his front registration plate hanging off.

He was filmed driving through common flooding spot Rufford Lane in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

There were woops, cheers and kids screaming in the background as his grey BMW drove straight into the body of water.

But it came to a sudden stop as soon as it came out the flood.

It is thought that his car stopped working because the airbox became wet through.

Engines will automatically stop in these situations because they cannot filter enough air into the vehicle.

The clip cuts to the car with its bonnet up and the driver and another man inspecting the issue.

The second picked up the air filter and said: "That's wet through look at that."

The driver asks if it the car will be alright if it dries out, to which the other man said: "You might be lucky."
