(Meredith) - A father in northern India surprised his 22-year-old son with a brand new BMW for his birthday, but apparently it wasn't the luxury vehicle his son had hoped for. 

The 22-year-old man named Akash became so upset upon receiving the gift that he pushed the BMW into a river, the Times of India reported. 

According to local authorities, he wanted a Jaguar instead. 

"Akash was demanding for a Jaguar car from his father, but when his father failed to buy one, he threw away his BMW in a fit of anger," Mukesh Kumar, a station house officer for Chhachhrauli police, told the newspaper. "His family had sold the Innova they had received from his in-laws to buy him the BMW." 

A video from the scene shows the car sinking beneath the water as divers and witnesses try to retrieve it. They eventually pulled it out with a crane.

His father, Sanjeev Kumar, later defended the 22-year-old and denied he wanted a Jaguar, according to CBS News. The dad, a local landowner, is now claiming his son swerved to avoid hitting an antelope before the BMW fell into the river.
