British couple are left shell-shocked when a TURTLE smashes through their car window and almost kills them
A British couple say they feel lucky to be alive after a turtle smashed into their car windscreen in America and almost killed them. Newly engaged Jon Brewer, 33, and his fiance Telani May, 32, from Southampton, Hampshire, were on holiday in Orlando, Florida, when the terrifying incident unfolded.
The couple, who have been together for 12 years, were en route to celebrate their engagement just hours after Mr Brewer popped the question when a turtle hit and smashed their car windscreen. Ms May said they believe the turtle had been hit by the car in front of them, causing it to ricochet into their windscreen and crack the glass, almost forcing Mr Brewer to lose control of the vehicle.
The couple had been in America for just 24 hours when the horror crash occurred. It is not clear if the turtle survived the incident"
