Amazingly the man survived the initial crash uninjured, but broke some ribs and punctured a lung while escaping his car and swimming to the surface.

After making it to dry land, he was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital. Emergency crews were then called out to pull his vehicle from the river.

Local police claim the driver passed underneath a security barrier in order to make the jump.

He's lucky he wasn't hurt more.
