Pals come up with un­usual way to keep cool

The Manica Post - - Teenchat/ Blabbermouth/ Weird & Weekender Guy & Gi -

A GROUP of friends came up with a bizarre way to keep cool while trav­el­ling in a pickup truck - by mak­ing a swim­ming pool in the back of it.

The four pals de­cided to cre­ate the make- shift pool in the back of the large ve­hi­cle in a bid to stay re­freshed in the blaz­ing heat.

But after the video of the pick- up truck started cir­cu­lat­ing on­line, of­fi­cers are now on the look out for the driver, who could face a sub­stan­tial fine.

Footage made by an on­looker mov­ing in a car be­hind shows the four men hav­ing a blast in the im­pro­vised pool on a street of the city of Al­maty in south- east­ern Kaza­khstan.

Even though the ve­hi­cle was mov­ing on busy cen­trally lo­cated streets, it ap­peared to re­tain wa­ter rel­a­tively well, as the men en­joyed splash­ing pas­sen­gers in pass­ing ve­hi­cles.

But the fun is likely to end when po­lice catch up with them after they con­firmed that they are look­ing for the driver of the ve­hi­cle.

If cap­tured, he is likely to re­ceive a sub­stan­tial fine for putting the lives of his pas­sen­gers at risk, it is re­ported.

An anony­mous rep­re­sen­ta­tive of lo­cal po­lice said:

“This is purely the driver’s re­spon­sibi lity although the men who were pas­sen­gers were clearly fool­ish.

“Against all the es­tab­lished rules he put the life and health of his pas­sen­gers on the line. Sadly de­spite tragic ac­ci­dents it does not seem to serve as a les­son for cer­tain mo­torists.”

Of f icer s have al so stressed that be­hav­iour like this is un­ac­cept­able in pub­lic places, and es­pe­cially on a road.

But some view­ers of the mo­bile phone footage seemed im­pressed with the group’s cre­ativ­ity.

‘ Koly Anonim’ said: “If our gov­ern­ment sees peo­ple hav­ing a good time they will do their very best to dash it im­me­di­ately.”

Oth­ers how­ever were also crit­i­cal, with one viewer adding: “They be­have as if they were kids. So shame­ful.”— Mir­ror On­line
