Yes, we get a car with broken glass.
See those happy attendees on the top of the building with water guns?
In their enthusiasm to throw water on the parade (which was a welcome relief for many who were sweating in the sweltering heat), they turned from using buckets of water and waterguns to water balloons.
Now imagine a water balloon being thrown from a building of that height. Make a rough estimate of the velocity of the moving water balloon and the impact it would make on its contact with the glass of the car. Now, I am not very good at physics, but evidently it is bound to do some damage. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to click the driver whose face turned ten shades of red in the span of a few seconds. I am sure the heat was not solely responsible for it.
Another over enthusiastic attendee held up the Pride Parade by a few minutes by his antics. Hiding his face behind a one way visor and brandishing a huge “polite” sign, he got within the barricades and hopped his way around in a bid to attract attention of the crowd and media alike.
Many, like me, believed he was a part of the parade till the security got a hold of him.
Being close to the action, I managed to capture these highly exciting moments before he was ushered out into the crowd.
After having his face revealed for all to see and curse.
