This cellphone footage captured in Zambia shows a Toyota Land Cruiser 79 single-cab bakkie pull a Toyota Hilux out of a dam.

From what we understand, the double-cab Hilux slid into the water at Mindola Dam despite its owner having applied the handbrake.

Someone in a Land Cruiser 79 came to the rescue, tugging the drenched Hilux out of the water. Unfortunately, the bakkie was a write-off thanks to the damage done to the electrical systems.

Watch the video above (it's best to switch to full-screen mode for this one), but be warned its contains some strong language...
