According to The Local, Sweden saw heavy rain over the weekend following a summer of raging wildfires. The torrential downpour left the underpass leading out of the station flooded with knee-height water.

Pictures circulating on social media show people enjoying a nice swim after a busy railway station in Uppsala, Sweden got flooded.

While most people would refrain from wading through the water, many others saw the situation as an opportunity for a fun activity. People decided to take a swim in the water, they also brought swimming pool accessories to use in the water.

"I wouldn't say it was the freshest water I've ever bathed in, so I had to have a real scrub in the shower afterward," photographer Sarah Thoren told The Local.

"People are having fun; the security are trying to spoil it though," an Instagram user said. "The water might get electrified," he added.

The water was eventually pumped out and the station is now back to normal, reports Business Insider.
