The police are investigating a video showing a car being purposefully dumped into the sea.
Speaking to Lovin Malta, a police spokesperson noted that the video may not have been filmed today. In it, several individuals can be heard giggling as one man enters the vehicle – a 1990 Honda Accord – before releasing the handbrake, allowing the car to slowly descend before hitting the sea, and slowly sinking.
The men filming the video can hardly contain their giggling at this scene.
It is illegal to dump a car into the sea. The video is believed to have been filmed in Armier.
@lovinmaltaofficialThis is apparently funny. Hey Malta, we only have one question: WHY? 😞😒🤬 ##lovinmalta ##fyp ##fypmalta ##malta ##malta♬ original sound – Lovin Malta
Lovin Malta spoke to the owner of the car in the video.
Saying he was currently speaking to police, he went on to say that “nothing happened” in the video.
Earlier today, the car was retrieved from the sea, where it was found to have suffered extensive damage.
