Family stranded after car keys fall in lake

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A couple have been stranded while on holiday in France after their car keys fell into a pedal-boat lake.

Angharad Carrington-Edmunds and her husband Jack have been stuck in the north of France since Monday with their two young daughters.

Locked in the car were their possessions and cash.

Their four month-old's christening had to be cancelled and Mr Carrington-Edmunds, who is self-employed, has missed out on a week's work.

Vacation with the car but without spare key? Sorry, but no mercy.

It's not always something you remember to take. We've gone long distances (well, for the UK anyway) and not even thought twice about taking a spare key.

Most insurance companies are scourges of the industry and will try anything and everything (usually ambiguously worded in the small print) to wriggle out of paying. I speak through experience too. <_<

I don't think the keys were kept in a very secure place, they must have been loose inside an open bag.

These things are cheap. Would've saved them all the trouble too. Clasp to the keys then to one of them.

Well, she had the baby "Master Blastered" to her front. But maybe that was for dead weight if she fell in.

Just find an object to pry the car open.
