Video: Elderly Man Accidentally Backs Car Into Neighbor's Swimming Pool

It might be time for this 85-year-old man in Malden, Mass. to give up his driving. He put himself in danger this week when he accidentally pressed the gas in reverse instead of drive, propelling his car through a fence and into a neighbor's swimming pool. Lucky for this elderly man, his neighbor Tom Cheffro is a quick-thinking guy. Cheffro saw the sinking car and immediately dove in, failing to open the door, at first. He then pushed the window down, unbuckled the belt, and pulled the driver out. The two were joking around before the ambulance came, so it seems nobody was injured.
