Howard A. Levitt, an employment lawyer from Toronto ran into some serious car troubles when a flood filled the streets with water. He was on his way to an important hearing in his Ferrari California when he began driving through a seemingly harmless puddle. As he made his way into the body of water, he soon realized that he underestimated it’s depth. The engine on the California began to bog down and the car could no longer move as water was at tire height.

He said water was spewing from the sewer “like a geyser” as water reached his windows, prompting Levitt to exit the car. He previously called a tow truck to retrieve the car, but he knew that his case was more important than waiting, so he hailed a cab and made his way to the airport, ultimately abandoning his Ferrari. By the time he left, the car was completely submerged underwater.
But of course, there is some good new as Levitt did win his case for the client. “I don’t want to sound cavalier, but at the end of the day you’ve got to see the humor in it and not sweat the small stuff. And it really is all small stuff,” said Levitt. “Nobody’s dying, nobody’s sick. The car gets fixed up and there’s insurance for that. I made it for my case and succeeded on my client’s behalf”
