Woman Accidentally Ends up on Ferry After Taking a Wrong Turn Trying to Cross a Bridge on River Thames

"That was a very, very dramatic and traumatic commute to work this morning I'll have you know," she said.

No matter what you do, some days are just out of your control! A radio presenter just had one of those days when everything looked mundane and normal until it turned on its head. The TikTok user who works at Made in Kent Radio was just trying to get to work like everybody else when she drew to the Thames river in her car. Now, she thought of crossing the river as all cars do, by taking the bridge. So she followed the cars who were taking the bridge. The next thing you know, she is on a ship! She was left stunned after realizing that she ended up on a ship en route to the office. Sophie explained: "I have actually ended up on a ferry. I'm just trying to commute - I'm just trying to commute to work. I thought it was a road and I'm on a freaking ferry."

Sophie panned the camera around to show her surroundings and we see in the video that she is indeed on a ferry, to be fair the road that was in front of her looked like any normal road. Sophie didn't say if there were any signs indicating the directions but she later tells the viewers that it was a  Woolwich Ferry; a free vessel that transports customers across the Thames from Woolwich on the south bank with North Woolwich on the north.

"I genuinely thought I was like, going into a tunnel," she said in another video. "I wasn't, I was going on to a ferry. It started spinning to turn, so everything was spinning around me, I thought 'oh my God, am I drunk?' That was a very, very dramatic and traumatic commute to work this morning I'll have you know," she added. 



 

Now, that was a wrong turn on the road that ended up in a ferry ride. In a similar story, one man ended up saving many lives after taking a wrong turn. A man named Brendon Birt was driving down a road in Red Oak Iowa, when he made a wrong turn and saw a house caught on fire. "I just felt like somebody was in there," Birt told the outlet. "I just knew I had to act quick." He was indeed right, it turned out that there were four siblings inside and none of them were awake and the smoke detectors also failed to detect the smoke. 

It was Birt's banging on the door that woke them up. Tender Lehman told KETV that at the time of the fire she was in Montana for a family emergency and the children were at home with their eldest brother who was 22 years old. They have set up a GoFundMe page to help the family from the fire. Ring doorbell footage captured the moment the three younger siblings ran out of their house together to save themselves. "My kids wouldn't have made it," Lehman told KETV. "They're safe because of him."
