Flash floods have caused chaos in the United Arab Emirates in the last 24 hours, with Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain all suffering under freak weather conditions over the region, and one such victim of the rain was this man who tried to boat his way across a car flooded car park in a shopping trolley to no avail.

You'd be forgiven for thinking the water was treacherous or that he was wearing clothes made out of money, so extreme were his measures to stay dry, which is why the end of this video is all the more satisfying.
