A forum post should be long enough to cover the subject yet short enough to generate interest.

Sad, I wonder what the situation was up to that point. Looks like he may have come up on a slower car and just drove off the road. Quick thinking opening the sunroof right away though. He had no idea how deep that water was and wanted a way out. Not sure about trying to start the thing though, not much chance that is going to happen!

While I agree with you about the sunroof. I probably would have just tried opening the door first.

wow, that's something. I agree with you guys about the sun roof although I'm not sure that he would be able to get out with ease. Really curious if this was just a stupid decision to pass in a traffic situation or he lost control for some odd reason..

When you car is in water the doors probably will not open easily, it is a pressure thing, the weight of the water pushing against the door won't allow you to easily open it. Opening the sunroof or the windows would help with opening the door, once the car was fully sunk but the sunroof is the better option since it would be the last thing to go into the water. When he hit the water, I'm pretty sure he had no idea how deep it was and if his FP was going to sink or simply sit on the bottom like it ended up doing. Opening the doors, if he actually could even get them open, would have made it sink faster if it was deep enough to sink the FP. I believe he made the right choices completely other than trying to start the car.

His biggest wrong choice may have got him in the water in the first place.

I think it's staged. The camera angle makes it seem like a passenger is filming, which I guess could have been coincidental. (I watched this with the sound off, so maybe he says something?)

Comments are quite harsh. A bunch of haters. Quick thinking and decent reaction without panic is what I see. I mean he couldn’t have been going too fast or the vehicle would have flipped, in my opinion. I imagine he’s only hitting start to get power to that moon roof, not to drive out like he’s driving some amphibian vehicle. Nobody made note of the gaulkers in the background, nobody able to help? Is it plausible that all the problems people have been having with their fpace’s is the reason: what if the new software update made the brakes fail?!
