While it may be one of the most capable off-road trucks to ever roll off the Ford assembly line, it turns out the Raptor F-150 does have one weakness: it doesn’t float. An elderly California woman found that out the hard way when the Raptor she was riding in took an unexpected dip in a residential swimming pool, trapping the woman inside the sinking pickup.
The home’s owner, Allied Gardens resident Paul Faulstitch, said he was in disbelief when he came home and was told there was a truck in his pool. However, the situation was exactly as advertised, with the brand new Raptor sunk on its side in his in-ground pool. Despite significant damage to his pool and decking, Faulstitich was just thankful nobody was badly hurt in the incident and that his kids weren’t in the pool, which could have certainly been the case on any given day during the summer.
