You can call it bad luck or stupidity, a luxury car owner in eastern China destroyed his newly bought BMW from the incense sticks that he had lit for religious rituals. The incident has reportedly taken place in Yangzhou city this Tuesday.
A video was also captured by one of his neighbor which shows the luxury car owner and his wife placing offerings in utensils and setting up the giant incense sticks, which was in term a part of the ritual for blessings and good luck.
The fire department has also suspected that it was the burnt incense on the cloth, which may the real reason behind the car fire.
The matter of fact that the car was purchased at a whopping twice cost as due to the hefty tax imposed on the imported cars in China, media reported.
Photographs of the car taken after the incident showed the BMW reduced to a smoldering piece of metal, well beyond repair.
