Landing on a wet grass runway

This landing on runway 30 at Jakkalsdans  South Africa (25°52’56.29″S 27°54’52.52″E) went slightly awry due to the moist conditions of the grass runway surface!
The runway was 220m long which would have been ample under normal (dry) conditions.
In this case there was ZERO resistance to braking . . . requiring a TREE to arrest the landing before the aircraft hit the stone wall!
