Joyrides are all well and good, provided that the person sitting behind the wheel isn’t endangering himself and all the others around him. But sometimes – and no matter how hard you stress it – there are still people who think that they’re decisions don’t have any consequences and that whatever they’re doing is cool and ‘all good’.
Take this 15-year old boy from California as an example. A few days ago, this young kid – who’s not yet of legal driving age, mind you – stole the keys of his father’s Porsche Boxster and along with his 12-year old cousin, took the car out for a leisurely run out on the streets of LA.
Unfortunately for the two, their joyride ended up becoming a close encounter with death after the 15-year old lost control of the car, sending it hurtling of a cliff and crashing 70 feet down on a construction site.
Whether you believe in divine intervention or not, what happened next seems to defy any logical scenario of how an accident of this nature usually ends up. After flying over a cliff and plunging 70 feet down, the Boxster did not flip over, and ended up landing on all four wheels. Except for a few dings and scratches here and there, the car remained virtually intact.
But what’s more amazing about the whole ordeal was that the two young boys inside the car escaped without injury.
As a precaution, the two kids were airlifted to a hospital and are now undergoing further tests, but for the most part, they escaped from the accident without any serious injuries.
Quite frankly, we’re at a loss for words. These two kids flew off a cliff in a Porsche and lived to tell the story of how they got out of the car unscathed. Somebody was definitely on their side out there.
