    British tourist plunged into muddy water while trying to “take a shortcut”

    A British tourist plunged into deep muddy water while he was trying to “take a shortcut” across a swamp. Martin Lewis was hoping to not get his footwear and cream-coloured trousers wet when he ended up getting submerged in the muddy water.

    Martin, 50, from Somerset in England, was on a holiday with his wife Rachael on Fuvahmulah in the Maldives when the hilarious incident happened on Thursday.

    The moment was captured on camera and it has gone viral on social media. In the video, Martin can be seen slowly walking on the mud before decided to take off his slippers to avoid getting his feet stuck in the swamp.

    “I don’t know how I’m going to get across, see my trousers are getting dirty. Look at the state of my feet I’ve got to try and get over there,” he is heard saying in the video.

    Martin then goes on to take a step into the muddy water, however, he falls into what is actually a waterlogged hole in the ground.

    He is completely submerged in water for a few seconds before re-emerging at the surface – covered in mud from head to toe.

    Rachael is heard laughing hysterically in the video as her husband comes out of the muddy swamp.

    “We are currently in the Maldives and my wife suggested taking a shortcut across the island to get to the other side. I’ll be honest, I knew that my feet were going to get wet, I even considered that perhaps the bottom of my trousers may also get wet and I thought it could make an amusing video, so my wife proceeded to film,” Martin was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

    He said, “It was a total shock when I disappeared into the hole, and I kept going down, I think the hole may have been nine to 10 foot deep. I was pretty shocked, but wasn’t phased or scared after spending a week diving here with 15 foot tiger sharks.”

    He continued, “Afterwards, I reached the surface, I scrambled out, and sat there composing myself whilst the wife laughed for a good 10 minutes… Afterwards, we walked away and got on the moped we had hired and headed straight to the beach.”
