Nobody was injured in an unfortunate accident earlier today when a rental car slid into a boling hot lagoon in the Mývatn region in North Iceland. The couple who had rented the car had forgotten to leave it in park gear. 

Fortunately nobody was inside the vehicle and only a little water got into the car, which is surprisingly undamaged.
