This is the moment a desperate motorist had to watch his car drift out to sea in Whitstable after he parked too close to the water while unloading a jet ski.
Whitstable local Lee Dolby, 40, filmed the man wading through the waves to rescue his Volkswagen Golf, which can be seen bobbing up and down in the water.
Lee said the man had been trying to unload a jet ski into the water with his car but got too close and the waves dragged the vehicle out.

‘Just popped down the beach for an hour with the boys and see this fella trying to unload his jetski and parked a little too close,’ Lee wrote on social media.
‘Couple of waves came and claimed his car!’
Another man rushes out to see if he can help but, realising the car’s lost, heads back to shore.

Lee can be heard on the video saying: ‘That geezer’s just lost his car!’
Another video shows a large pick-up truck backing on to a ramp and a man attaching a tow rope to the vehicle to pull it out.
The pick-up starts driving and the car is pulled from the sea while the devastated driver tries to help, pushing it from the bonnet.
