No, not that Kerry, this one lives in Texas and is still alive (at least at the time of the intrview). Pretty chilled considering the water crossing kind of went wrong.

He is a lot calmer than I'd be. I also doubt I'd be taking calls from ch7, unless they were sending their helicopter.

Sounds like he's still in a tree!! :eek:

But his wife (who provided the footage to the TV studio) is at home?!? :confused:

I guess he took the footage as the car washed away, then stopped filming to get outta the car & into the tree, then sent the footage to his wife (as you would if your car got washed away!!!) who then forwarded the footage to the TV Studio (as you would if your Hubby phoned to say 'sorry dear, but I'm gonna be late home.... The car got washed off the road & I climbed outta it as it sank & now I'm sitting in a tree! Don't worry tho, I'm safe & if you send the attached vid to the TV News I might be be famous for at least 15 minutes!!)

So she did, & now he's taking calls?! I hope he negotiated a good price for each interview, cos the cars almost certainly gonna be a write off!! :rolleyes:
