Wild video shows gushing fire hydrant suspending vehicle in the air after crash

A wild video captured water from a gushing fire hydrant suspending a vehicle in the air following a crash in Southern California. 

The Orange County Fire Authority mentioned its firefighters stumbled upon the uncommon scene on Sunday night time in Lake Forest in the Los Angeles-area. 

“We’re going to chalk this up as something you don’t see everyday,” the agency wrote on X

Video shared by authorities confirmed gushing water from the hydrant lifting the rear of an SUV off the floor. 

The vehicle might be seen coming up and down from the pressure of the water as firefighters walked round the crash web site. 

“Fortunately both drivers had self-extricated prior to our arrival. Firefighter paramedics treated both drivers and they were transported to the hospital – one requiring paramedic level care,” the Orange County Fire Authority mentioned.

“While the two were being transported, firefighters on scene continued to work on isolating the water grid on each side of the hydrant,” the company added. “This lowered the car and firefighters were eventually able to access the water shutoff adjacent to the car.” 

The reason behind the accident was not instantly clear.
