Tourists follow GPS, drive car into ocean

In The Office Season 4 episode Dunder Mifflin Infinity, Michael drives his car into a lake while blindly following GPS directions.

Think it couldn’t happen in real life? Read on:

Three Japanese tourists in Australia found themselves in an embarrassing situation after their GPS navigation system lured them down the wrong path.

As the three drove their rented Hyundai Getz into Moreton Bay, they found the GPS device guiding them from a gravel road into thick mud. They tried to get back to solid ground, but as the tide rose they were forced to abandon their car. Passengers on passing ferries watched in amazement.
