This very lucky woman escaped being trapped in her sinking BMW after driving off the end of a pier in Auckland, New Zealand.

Police officers dived in to help with one officer trying to break the drivers window with a baton but to no avail.

Now the frantic woman was still trapped in the car and another Police officer used a large rock to break the back window of the car, freeing the woman.

She was taken to shore suffering from cut, bruises and shock.
