It’s been so scorching hot in California that one Amazon delivery driver took a splashy dive into a customer’s pool, fully clothed.
According to a video shared on Viralhog on Sunday, an Amazon driver appears to plunge headfirst into a pool after making a delivery — cap, shoes, and all. The video was captured by the homeowner’s CCTV in Gardena, California on June 30, according to Viralhog.
Wearing a black Amazon vest and shorts, the video shows the driver dropping off a package and putting his phone on a table before diving into the pool. Post-swim, the driver appears to nonchalantly walk back to his vehicle.
However, this wasn’t a swim on a whim — according to Viralhog, the customer had left a note in the delivery instructions saying: “If you want to go for a swim, you are welcome to,” per Viralhog.
Temperatures in Gardena, California, soared to highs of 70 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit in June, per Weather Spark. The escalating heat is taking a toll on businesses in California, Arizona, and Texas, Insider previously reported.
And even as temperatures rose to 130 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California — the hottest place on earth — tourists continued to visit the site in droves. A man died on July 18 after collapsing at the end of a hike in Death Valley, Insider reported.
And this heatwave isn’t just confined to the US. Record-breaking temperatures have been noted globally, with the hottest day in recorded history falling on July 3, Insider reported. Climate scientists warned last July that the climate crisis could make heatwaves more common and persistent.
Extreme heat puts immense stress on our bodies, which struggle to regulate temperature at around 104 degrees, according to a recent study from the University of Roehampton.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider sent outside regular business hours.
