An unlucky Jeep Wrangler owner couldn’t beat the tide at K’gari (formerly known as Fraser Island), with their off-roader and camper trailer getting submerged.

    Instagram user cant.keep.up.with.the.ryans captured footage of the Wrangler almost entirely underwater at the popular Queensland destination, with water lapping over the roof of the vehicle.

    Footage shows the camper was almost entirely submerged, too.

    The user says they saw the Wrangler driver pass by their camp in a hurry to beat the tide to cross Coongul Creek… but evidently they couldn’t make it.

    Fraser Island Towing shared photos of the rescue operation, which along with Rainbow Beach Towing winched the Wrangler out and put it on a flatbed.

    The towing company warns drivers should exercise extra caution due to the unforgiving terrain on that side of K’gari.
