F430 Sacrificed to Avoid Boy Riding Bike
There’s no better feeling than saving a young boy’s life, even at the expense of seeing your own Ferrari taking a dip into a lake.
That was the scene earlier this week when the owner of a fabulous Ferrari F430 narrowly avoided hitting a young boy on a bicycle while driving along Lake Oakdale in Dallas, Texas.
As the strapping man was taking his F430 on one of his usual joyrides along the park, at the last second, he swerved his car away from the boy and onto the not-so-inviting waters of Lake Oakdale. Half of the car’s rear ended up being submerged and when all efforts were made to try to get the F430 back to dry land ended futilely, the man relented and called in the towers. We normally don’t condone the idea of wrecking a supercar but we’re going to give this selfless man a pass. His quick instincts not only saved the young boy’s life, but he’s also earned our respect and admiration for not even thinking twice about wrecking his car just so he could save the boy’s life.
