Video captures couple crashing through Lake Winnipeg ice in truck
A couple in Manitoba tried to cut two hours off a road trip yesterday by driving ACROSS a frozen lake instead of going around it. They weren’t on an “ice road” but in an area where people ice fish. Unfortunately they hit some thin ice . . . and ended up losing their truck.
They both jumped out in time, but their truck sank. And they were streaming live on Facebook when it happened. Manitoba RCMP said neither were injured. Officers are warning anyone who is out on the ice, or considering driving on the lake at this time, that there is a rapid current underneath the frozen water and it may not be safe. The truck is now submerged below the ice.
