Someone in Metro Vancouver probably has major regrets after performing this embarrassing stunt on the low tide mud banks of the Fraser River.

Late this morning, a driver drove their Jeep on the Fraser River’s South Arm mud banks between No. 2 Road and Gilbert Road in Richmond – just east of Steveston. The vehicle made several doughnuts before it got stuck in the deep mud.

According to witnesses, attempts were made to drive the vehicle out of the mud but the vehicle only submerged deeper into the quicksand-like substance.

Ultimately, the driver and occupants had to ditch their vehicle as the tides began to rise. By 2 p.m., tide levels had reached the windows of the vehicle and bystanders say the windshield wipers were still moving at the time.

The water line reached the Jeep’s roof at 3:30 p.m.
