Swiss man mistakes river for car parkA drunk Swiss man accidently drove his car into the river because he thought it was an underground car park.
An intoxicated Swiss man got a shock when he mistook a river for an underground car park.
Peter Thaler was arrested by police when he went to collect his car from what he believed was a parking lot but was in fact Ruess river near Luzern after he had drunkenly drove down a ramp leading to the water the night before.
A source said: "He was confused because of the fog - but mostly because of the drink.
He lost his licence and will be fined and will have to pay all the costs of the recovery of his car."
Mr. Thaler drank so much alcohol, he was still over the limit the next morning and failed a breathalyser test.
