Woman Sunk Car In Frozen River, Took Selfies on Top Of Sinking Car
Residents came together to rescue a woman whose car crashed through the ice of the Rideau River in the south end of Ottawa.
Emergency services were called to respond to the river in Manotick around 4:30pm on Sunday.
Witnesses told CTV News that a car driving around on the went through the ice and into the cold water late Sunday afternoon.
Videos and pictures showed the woman standing on top of the vehicle as it sank into the river.
"You don’t expect your kids to have to watch out for cars zipping down on the frozen river," Sacha Gera told CTV News. "Essentially, the kids were just playing out on the backyard hockey rink. And while they were skating they saw this yellow Subaru kind of zipping down the river and they were caught off by surprise."
Luckily, everyone is safe. It feels like she was up to doing something dangerous, and probably had to share it with her followers on whatever social media platform, which would explain the selfie.
