SINGAPORE - Stomp reader Jeffrey alerted the citizen journalism website to a flash flood that had occurred this afternoon (Apr 18) along Mount Elizabeth, located between Paragon shopping centre and Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre, which left a Mazda stranded.

In the video he contributed, a Mazda can be seen driving through the water that reaches half of the car tyre's height.

It stops metres after passing the zebra crossing and a passer-by can be heard exclaiming, "It's stuck."
