Driving over a frozen lake can be an interesting experience, though it’s only possible in some northern parts. Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada, is used as a road to travel from one point to another. However, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police usually warns people to stay off the ice in this area, as a rapid current running under the frozen water makes it unsafe for crossing. In mid-March it’s suggested that only ice farther north would be suitable to drive on.

Unfortunately, Ms Ko'ona Cochrane and her husband decided not to listen to the officials, so they took their tour over the frozen lake.

As the clip starts, Ms Cochrane can be heard joking about how they are going to cross the lake. This woman admires the winter beauty this place has to offer. She ominously says, “Oh it looks frightening”. Before even being able to ask her companion why is he slowing down, the ice gives way and the truck plunges into the waters below. The camera films something unclear, but Ms. Cochrane can be heard screaming, while her husband yells, “bail, bail.”

As Global News reported, the two luckily were uninjured and refused emergency medical services. News media reported the truck was not salvageable and is currently submerged under the ice.

Next time you try to fool around and take your life under risk, have in mind that there might be a good reason why authorities tell you not to do something. It’s for your own good.

      He didn't fall through because he fell. He fell through because he drove over a week spot.
