Come on who got stuck

4x4 stuck in sea is winched to safety in Swansea
The 4x4 got stuck in the water at The Mumbles on Friday A 4x4 had to be winched to safety in Swansea before after it got stuck in the sea, the coastguard said.
The vehicle got into difficulty in wet sand after the driver had retrieved his rigid inflatable boat at The Mumbles on Friday.
The alarm was raised at 11:45 BST, as the tide reached above its wheels.
A recovery firm pulled the 4x4 clear, with no one injured, Milford Haven Coastguard said

What is it - Mitsubishi, Isuzu?

Bet whoever was driving was in a cold sweat after realising they were past the point of no return. Ropes every time or wait for a higher tide.

A bit worse than just needing a quick winch out! The Ford is only fit for scrap now.
