Trapped In Sinking Car, Woman Drowns. A woman in Shanghai, China accidentally reverses off a ferryboat and into the Huangpu River. Her husband and 18-year-old son who were not in the car at the time of this incident watch helplessly on the side. Bystanders prevent the husband from jumping in to save the woman. Chinese citizens ask why the rescue boat in this video just sits there doing nothing to save the woman trapped in the car.
