1 February 2024: Oslo

Two motorists escaped unharmed after their car plunged into an Oslo fjord. How were they able to escape? A floating sauna came to their rescue, Norwegian police said. The vehicle, a Tesla, partly submerged in the water as its occupants scrambled onto the roof. “When the car ended up in the water, two people were, it appears, inside,” Oslo police wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “They were pulled from the water by a floating sauna.” The car can be seen in a video sinking under the water just as the floating sauna pulls up next to it. People on the sauna boat helped the motorists from the freezing waters. “One of the guests came running and told me a car had landed in the water. I accelerated to full speed in the direction of the people,” the sauna boat’s captain, Nicholay Nordahl, said in a Norwegian daily VG article.
