    i live about 20 miles from this, it was a young lady driving the van doing a story on the dangers of thin ice. She thought she was on road to the lake, and there were no warning signs. Locals say that they could see how this would happen. Cost of news van: 250,000.00.

    You think they could cut in a ice ramp and haul it up if they got a diver to get under the axial.

    Easy yo say when you sitting in warm living room..

    9 times out of 10, 3.5" is way more than enough ice to walk on.

    Funny video.

    All I want to know is how do you explain that to your insurance company? Or better yet the location of the vehicle? Scuba gear may be required.

    The sled one was in one of my snowmobile mags and they said a few riders/mechanics were sleeping in some of the trailers and stuff when they went down. Luckily no one was hurt they said, but that sure would be a way to wake up.

    yeah, it all went down at about 5am in the morning, I wish I had pics of them fishing them out, if I recall right they used a excavator amd choped the ice and pulled them to shore. I'll try and find more pics of it.
