Any motorsport event has the potential for things to go wrong, although it is often the sports vehicles that tend to encounter disasters rather than the spectators. However, in the case of a Nissan R35 GT-R, this was not the case as it slid from level ground into a body of water.
The incident happened during a drag race in Cebu, a large island in the Philippines. A race between two modified Hondas was taking place when a spectator recording the race caught the GT-R sliding down the hill in the background. According to a witness who spoke to Motor1, the owner of the car had left it unattended in neutral and with the parking brake released, causing the car to slide down the hill into its watery grave.

A rush of onlookers goes to investigate the scene, but there’s obviously not much they can do. At this point, the car is almost completely submerged and the open door, which allowed the cabin to flood even more quickly, twists beyond the limit of its hinges.
Another video shows the aftermath of the event with the sports car in its same almost submerged position. Seconds later it sank to the bottom without a trace, but with the help of a tow truck they were finally able to fish it out. Needless to say, though, despite not sustaining any physical damage other than the door, this GT-R was likely damaged by the floods.
