Man pushes BMW into river after parents refused to buy Jaguar

A 22-year-old man from India was upset that his parents bought him a BMW M3 for his birthday instead of a Jaguar, so he pushed the brand new vehicle into a river.

Footage shared online in India shows the BMW slowly sinking beneath the surface of a river but despite the youth's best efforts to destroy the vehicle, it apparently re-surfaced after flowing into a small island on the river.

A group of men begin pulling the auto from the river.

A man allegedly sank his BMW into a river because he was angry his parents didn't buy him a Jaguar.

However, police said that the young man suffered from mental health issues and has been taking treatment for his "mentally disturbed" condition.

In India, a BMW costs roughly $50,000 while a Jaguar can cost around $70,000.

The Galactic centre of the Milky Way is dominated by one resident, the supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*). Sagittarius A*-the Milky Way's central black hole-is normally quite subdued, with low levels of activity recorded over years.

The vehicle was eventually removed from the river and police will now investigate. "His family had sold the [Toyota] Innova they had received from his in-laws to buy him the BMW", he said.

According to Fox News, the boy's father said: "I wanted to give my son a birthday present".

He dad said: "We have two cars, a BMW and a Swift".

They told the Times of India that while Akash "had certain mental health issues" he had not driven the auto into the canal deliberately and had just swerved to avoid an antelope that was crossing the road.

"We thought there may be somebody in the auto but when those engaged in the rescue operation reached the vehicle they found none inside", said one unidentified villager. No charges appear to have been filed against the young man.
