Car sinks after crashing into lake

World Rally driver Ott Tanak and co-driver Ragio Molder are forced to swim to safety after crashing into a lake.

The Estonian pair were on Special Stage 3, near the Mexican city of Guanajuato, when their Fiesta WRC slid off the dirt road and rolled down an embankment into the water.

Miraculously, the M-Sport team managed to recover the car from the lake and repair it so the duo could continue on in the rally.
