Hydroplane racer Kayleigh Perkins-Mallory had to be pulled out of the water by rescuers after being submerged for over 90 seconds when her Hydroplane race vehicle flipped on Seattle's Lake Washington this past Sunday.
Fortunately, the accident wasn't as bad as it looks and Kayleigh was not seriously injured, explaining:
"It was a very gentle crash. I really don't have a scratch on me. This boat took all the brunt of the force."
Check out the video above to see her hydroplane fly into the air like a paper airplane, then take a horrifying crash into the water.
We're so glad she's okay!

Earlier we showed you the vid of the dramatic beach rescue of a teen who was buried alive under 5 feet of sand for almost 40 minutes.
Rescuers spent several scary minutes frantically trying to dig up the sand to reach him. A bystander who witnessed it all go down said:

A teen was buried alive after 5 feet of sand collapsed on him at Newport Beach, California.
As this video (above) shows, firefighters, paramedics, and good samaritans all rushed to the boy's safety and tirelessly dug for 40 minutes to get the boy out from under all the sand.
When rescuers finally reached him, thankfully, he was still alive. He was rushed to the hospital where he was said to be in good condition.
Thank goodness! And, bravo to all the rescuers who dove right in to help.
Guess this teaches us all a lesson…don't dig holes at the beach??
