Watch an Exploded Fire Hydrant Hold Up a Car for an Hour

By Casey Chan on at

One of my yet to be fulfilled dreams is to pop open a fire hydrant and dance naked in the street while the exploded hydrant rains all over me. FUN. I'm second guessing myself now though cause exploded fire hydrants are FREAKING POWERFUL. They can even lift cars.

The video shows a hit and run accident that caused a fire hydrant to explode. Cool! Dance party! Not exactly. The car that happened to slide over the bursting water hole after the accident was lifted by the water pressure coming out of the fire hydrant for over an hour (it took that long for the water department to shut down the pipe). Just watch the video, it's hilarious to see mother nature's greatest resource treat a car like a wimp. [The Awesomer]
