This is Why You Don’t Take a ‘Shortcut’ Across a Frozen Lake

In case you weren’t aware, then we’ll be the first to tell you: It’s a bad idea to drive your SUV across a frozen lake. The reasons are obvious. SUVs are heavy. Ice can break. The water underneath is cold. You’ll probably die. Should we keep going?

This Canadian couple didn’t heed our warnings and decided to try and cut a couple hours off their road trip the other day by driving across a frozen lake. This is apparently a fairly common thing in Canada if the ice is thick enough. Well, it wasn’t. They hit a thin patch and BAM! They went right through.

Luckily, they both got out of the SUV in time, but their vehicle was lost to the lake. But not to worry!

They were streaming on Facebook Live when it all went down, so they at least have the video below to remember the great times they had!
