Video: Watch someone lose their car in slow motion from the recent flooding in Houston

Mother Nature hasn’t been particularly nice to the Houston, Texas area as heavy rains swamped the area as of recent, leaving behind widespread flash-flooding.

This of course means lots of carnage was bound to occur, and it just so happened that a local TV news affiliate crew, who was on-site at a location with severe flooding, was forced to help save a man after he nonchalantly drove into the flooded area in mention.

It’s almost like watching someone basically write their own ticket to receiving a Darwin Award.

As the story goes, reporter Steve Campion literally watched as a Honda Insight drove by him and his crew, and into a horribly flooded area. The Insight’s owner next finds his car floating, then beginning to sink, so he immediately climbs out, while the whole time, Campion watches the event unfold.

In the video, you can also see that the whole thing isn’t without Campion’s criticism of: really, just why would you do that?

Campion is then more or less forced into being obliged to help the Insight owner in need, but his half-assed effort pretty much speaks for itself in terms of how one would typically think if he or she was also in Campion’s feet.

Check out the video below.
