An ice cream truck parked on a popular beach in England was swept away by the waves, and a video of the incident is now going viral on social media. The incident took place on July 7 at around 4 pm when the truck, stationed on Harlyn Beach, was carried away from the shore. Locals, including tourists, waded into the sea and tried to stop the vehicle, but they failed. Reportedly, no one was injured as the van was unmanned at the time. The coastguard confirmed that the driver was found safe and was not in the vehicle.
Video footage online showed the ice cream truck floating in the sea. Padstow Coastguard reported that the vehicle was pulled out at around 9:45 pm after the tide had subsided.
A spokesperson for Padstow Coastguard said, "Just before 5 pm yesterday, HM Coastguard was made aware of an ice cream van that was caught by the tide at Harlyn Bay, Cornwall. Padstow Coastguard Rescue Team and RNLI Lifeguards were sent to ensure the safety of those involved. The owner arranged a recovery vehicle, which recovered the van at around 9:45 pm when the tide receded enough for it to be safe to do so. Coastguard rescue officers left once the vehicle was recovered and in a safe location."
A witness described the incident as "very strange" and likened it to a scene from an "end of the world film."
