She survived the ordeal after being "shot out" into the Passaic River, a result authorities referred to as "miraculous."

This should be a deleted scene from Being John Malkovich: between being ejected from Malkovich and landing in New Jersey, a mile long sewer ride.

I had to have my Passaic drained once.

I felt much better afterwards.

So did the elderly Serbian woman who was stuck there.

But was her day better than spending all day on the Pol tab?

Drainage is better than sewage.

I thought that was a standard NJ rite of passage.

She should pay for the rescue cost by doing PSAs about the possible consequences of  driving through flood water.

Yes, but not by a lot. This is New Jersey after all.

When they pulled her out, did she want to go back and do it again?

I'm amazed that she came out the other end unscathed.  She managed to somehow miss everything that might've been lodged in an underground drainage pipe, with no light, for a mile?  And didn't land on anything damaging after getting shot out the end?  Lady, go buy a lottery ticket.

Not to mention, TFA said the water in the pipe moves at 30 MPH.  Two minutes to travel a mile at that speed.  And for that entire two minutes, the pipe was never full enough for long enough to drown her.  Seems like damn near a miracle to me.

I didn't know that ride was free if you were a Doordash contractor.

So much for saving a little time by going through the water instead of going around.

She's going to need a new car now and how much do you want to bet the city bills her for removing her old one from the drainage system.

They're both cleaner, and faster than the subway.
