The mud in the Manukau Harbour sucks like a hooker on crack. This is hilarious…idiots.

An Auckland man had a “grand stand view” of an unusual rescue mission which unfolded over the past few days.

Alan Green, of Piha, was attending a weekend workshop at the Blockhouse Bay boat club when he noticed a silver Rav4 submerged in the Manukau Harbour on Friday.

The next day he witnessed two more 4WDS – which it seemed had come to rescue the first stranded vehicle – get stuck in the mud.

“The tide came in and enveloped all three of them.” ?
And although a group of about 10 people managed to pull one 4WD free, Green said the Ford Explorer was “completely stuffed – there was water pouring out”.

Today the incoming Manukau Harbour tide was lapping at the undercarriages of up to five 4WD vehicles stuck in the muddy “car graveyard”.

“It’s one of the most delight comedy of errors you could ever see. It’s been hilarious,” Green said.

“The original car has had four tides go through it and was completely submerged.

Around 5.30pm today a Nissan Pajero was successful in pulling two of the vehicles out.

Green told the Herald 10 to 12 people had helped out with the rescue attempts over the weekend.

“Looks like they’re all friends.”

I wonder for how much longer.

I ?must admit I get a similar enjoyment watching fools on the boat ramp outside place getting stuck in wet sucking sand at low tide.
