Current Mood: shockedshocked

One guy in Japan had randomly decided to fit a video camera in his car -- probably just for the laughs. And then the earthquake hit (you can see a pedestrian struggling to keep on his feet), and a few minutes later the tsunami came in. The camera caught it all on tape, and when the car-wreck was recovered, the camera was smashed but the memory was still readable. (The owner had decided to abandon ship before the car got banged up, luckily.)

You can see the video here.

It's very impressive. It's the middle of a city at a busy intersection, and suddenly the water just keeps on coming.

wow it is amazing to see how quickly the tsunami came in! and I didn't expect the car to stay afloat that long and to be working still, you can hear the radio and see the windshield wiper going right to the point where the camera gives out because of going under water.

Jeetje! "Mooi" dat het op deze manier gefilmd is, maar ook erg beangstigend om te zien hoe snel dit gegaan is...
