Truck Falls Through Frozen Ice On Lake Winnipeg

Rumble A bad driver is something that no road can possibly be saved from. Now, there are incredibly many cars in the world, and they all travel on the same roads. If you drive smart, you can quickly get to work, go on a trip to anywhere in the world or just go shopping for a few weeks ahead. But at the same time not all drivers follow the rules of the road making the lives of the first group simply unbearable. And the worst part of it all is that you just have to learn to live with this, because whatever you do, whatever the authorities do, nothing will be done in the end.

So, what happens now on the roads of the world? More and more people get a driver's license, buy their cars, but not all of them make efforts to comply with all the rules of the road the majority of drivers adhere to. Unfortunately, the lousy driver is not only oblivious to the rules but simply refuses to care what else is going around them - they just make a mess of it all, do minor mucks on the road and leave! Like what they have just done does not concern them, it was not their fault they slammed into someone’s car, or a person and caused damage or injury, those extras always appear out of nowhere anyway! And you are usually so shaken after the incident that you have no focus or time to write down their car make or registration number and you find yourself at a double loss. But now, thanks to the magic of the Internet, you can correct the situation a little.

What did you usually do when you were cut off on the road or when someone stole your parking stop right before your very nose? You could shake your fists in air in fury, angrily scream curses into the indifferent space, but it does not change anything. Now there is a magical network called the Internet, which allows you to make a small contribution to the struggle against such terrible drivers. Instead of shaking your fists, you can take a photo of someone who broke the rules, and place it on the network with the appropriate title and tag. This will help you get rid of the indignation that has been boiling in your soul, and also show people the car and the registration number of someone who cannot drive. Of course, photography is not the only way. For example, video records are much more convincing, which can be captured both on camera and on DVRs, which are now installed in almost every car.

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.
