Fans SLAM Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky for driving down a flooded road with her children

Chris Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, was slapped by Australians on social media after trying to drive down a flooded road in Byron Bay on Monday.

The Spanish actress, 44, angered fans by posting videos on Instagram in which she herself escaped through a passenger window and left the car before a friend had to tow the vehicle away.

While she laughed at the incident, some claimed that the mother of three should have known better than driving flood water if she didn’t know the depth.

Angry Aussies flocked to Facebook to criticize Elsa for risking injury to herself and her passengers by driving through a flooded area.

The dangers of driving through high water are well documented.

Aside from potentially damaging the vehicle, a person who chooses to drive in flood waters will be seriously injured – trying to leave the vehicle or by staying in the vehicle while drifting away.

According to the NRMA, only shallow water is needed to make a car floating.

“Even if you’re lucky enough to survive being hit by a flood in your car, the damage your vehicle will take will regret your chance,” the organization warns.

Other fans wondered why Elsa had decided to upload videos of herself in the car to Instagram, rather than focusing on the fraught situation.

“Stupid *** decided it’s a great time for a selfie!” one person raged.

She was accompanied on the fateful road trip by her children and friend Luke Zocchi, who has long been her husband’s personal trainer.

The Fast and the Furious star started sharing a video from the driver’s seat that showed the murky water surrounding the car.

“A little too optimistic? I was so sure I could cross, “she endorsed the clip in Spanish and English before adding,” Help me! ‘

Elsa followed this up with another video in which she was told, “I was stuck. Awesome. Oh god, oh god. What am I doing?’

“My only option”: As the situation escalated, Elsa had no choice but to leave the vehicle

The footage was probably shot in Byron Bay, where the Hemsworths own a $ 20 million mansion. The area has been hit by heavy rainfall for the past two days.
