MAN WHO GOT BMW FOR HIS BIRTHDAY PUSHED IT INTO THE RIVER BECAUSE HE WANTED A JAGUAR
This would be the quintessential First World problem... if it didn't happen in the so-called Third World. It does go to show that money still can't buy brain cells.A young man in India who received a BMW for his 22nd birthday pushed it into a river because it wasn't the Jaguar he had been hoping for, police claim.
Villagers in Yamunanagar, in the northern state of Haryana, were shocked to see a pricey white BMW 3 Series sinking into the Western Yamuna Canal. One witness called police, who sent a recovery team to make sure nobody was trapped inside.
Police divers borrowed an earthmover and, with the help of locals, recovered the BMW from a patch of tall grass it was moored on. Authorities determined the car belonged to a man named Akash, reportedly the son of a prosperous local landowner.
According to police, Akash deliberately pushed his new car into the canal.
"Akash was demanding a Jaguar car from his father, but when his father failed to buy him one, he threw away his BMW in a fit of anger, Mukesh Kumar, a station house officer for the Chhachhrauli police, told The Times of India.
