Woman wakeboards along street in flood hit Czec...
04 June 2013
The video, which has become an internet hit in the Czech Republic, shows the 26-year old, known only as Mila, being towed by a car and skimming along the water-filled streets of the town of Pisek in southern Bohemia.
"We were going round the town taking pictures and then we saw children splashing in the water and that gave us the idea," Radek, the man who made the video, told the Czech press. "We thought we could go boarding."
The wakeboarding video came as vast flood waters caused by days of torrential rain continued to leave a trail of death and destruction across the Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Eleven people have now died, with a further nine missing as rivers burst their banks and destroyed homes across the region
In the Czech capital Prague most flood defences held firm - despite water inundating some areas of the city. Water levels on the Vltava River peaked on Tuesday morning, but further downstream towns were bracing themselves for the worst.
