Man rescued after GPS tells him to drive into middle of river

GPS says take a right turn. GPS says pull over. Drive into a swampy river. Oops, wait, GPS didn't say!

Except, one GPS did and a man and his car ended up in the middle of a river in Eastern China.

Mashable reports the man didn't realize the dirt path was leading him to water.

On the Chinese social giant, Weibo, police posted pictures where they said nearby farmers called for help.

Half a day, a truck and a bulldozer later, the car was finally pulled out of the water.

Police urged GPS users to be careful when driving on unknown roads.

The incident happened on April 1, no less. Talk about a wet joke!
