Hey, c'mon now... he jiggled the damn rope...
Hamed was urging them to make a U-turn so they could return to the motel, when all of a sudden the car went into the water, he said. So he sounded the horn of the Lexus, then got a rope.Well, you certainly can't ask for a more heroic effort than that.
"I put the rope a few times in the water ... nothing happened," Hamed said. "I moved it a little bit to see if they take it."
After receiving no response to the jiggling rope, Hamed got in his car and left, driving through the night to Montreal, about three hours away.I can only hope the systemically racist Canadian justice system is getting poor Hamed counselling for his traumatic experience here.
He didn't call police or tell his parents because he thought he would get in trouble for allowing Zainab to drive.
