    He states at the start that he is going through water deeper than the recommended wading depth, then finishes letting us know that the insurance company is assessing it. He might want to hope his insurance company doesn't watch the vid

    yep my thoughts exactly, common sense should have also come into it knowing how deep the water was and driving through it knowing there was a good chance of drowning the snorkel less diesel engine.

    Especially when there is an easy track right around it...it wasn't necessary to go through.

    No sympathy. Doesn't deserve to be covered by insurance in my opinion. Would only increase rates for others.
