BRISBANE, Calif. — A day of fun on a frozen California lake became pandemonium after one person fell through the ice, then another and another.
What should have been a day of sledging thrills turned into a string of near-disasters in California after one person fell into an icy lake.
As they overshot the edge of the ice and fell into the bitterly-cold water, flailing and waving their arms in panic, pals to rushed to their aid.
But it begs the question: How many people does it take to rescue a man who falls into an icy lake?
The situation in Wrightwood, California, rapidly became a mass rescue attempt, involving ropes, rubber rings and plastic sledges.
But as dozens of people joined in, several more crashed though ice.
