Breakdown vehicle pushes stricken car off ledge

Updated: 


While trying to save a car stuck on an embankment, a recovery truck managed to push it off instead and into a lake.

The truck driver was cautious at first while trying to rescue the car, with a group of people guiding him slowly down.

However, as the truck tried to reverse down the steep slope, the driver appeared to lose control of the flatbed and scraped along the wall to the side of it.

As the wall guided the truck down, the flatbed struck the SUV that was teetering on the edge and the car was then plunged into the water below.

The footage was originally posted on to the Live Leak website, and has since been viewed over 2,000 times.

It is unclear where the incident took place, although it is believed to have happened in China.
