How did the car end up in the middle of the river?

From "The Daily"

It is thought the mother was the driver of the white car and had decided to park it in a bay close to the Schinkel River.
However, when she walked out of the vehicle, it began to roll forward. She desperately attempted to free her young toddler from the car but it plummeted into the canal.

Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection comes to mind.

I know I'm probably going to get a lot of dislikes posting the above comment. It just had to be done. It's great that nobody was hurt but in the bigger picture, well. I'll just leave it at that. I did not mean to offend anyone or the people in the video.

#5 if thats the thought you had, you might wanna revisit the books about Darwin's theories. I cannot see any context of those, and this video. The reports say that the car started to move with the child after the mother parked and got out, and the mother tried to get the child out but ended up getting dragged in with the car. If the child had died, it would have been the mother's fault. The child might be the next Einstein for all we know. Still wanna stick to Darwin?

#6 or maybe a drug addict. Why does everyone have to be a genius in an argument/comment in a comment section? Most of us are just average. :x

#7 Now that's funny! :x

#8 we never know, that is part of the point ;) I made that post because the person above didn't know what Darwin's theories were about and drew a line between the video and that to illustrate that there is a time and place to use references, and times to not ;)
