Through the Ice – And They Keep On Coming…

Panicky Rescue Effort

ABC News has just posted this mass-rescue video of several people falling through the ice in a southern California mountain lake.  The incident occurred on Christmas Day at the Jackson Lake Resort near Wrightwood.  One of the holiday-goers walked out onto the ice covering the lake and then fell through.  Several more people came running out onto the ice to help him, but they all fell through, too. 

The chain reaction just kept on going until enough ropes and inner tubes were rounded up and all lived to watch themselves on national tv.


The video pretty much tells the story itself:
