"We saw the vehicle coming over from the island side. It was very brave of him and I decided to film him.

"I was in the military for 24 years and I've seen lots of things but nothing as ridiculous as that.

"One of the passengers got out and walked up and down, pondering what their next move was.

"I guess they just had to wait for nature to take its course before they could leave."
