But I don't think it's cold enough for this! :rofl:

TV News Truck Breaks Through Ice

Even though the temperatures have fallen, the ice on many bodies of water is not thick enough to support vehicles.

A crew for a local television station drove its news truck onto a channel to Big Muskeo Lake Sunday and broke through the ice. Crews for WDJT-TV in Milwaukee were reportedly shooting a story about thin ice when the truck fell through. The driver reportedly mistook the channel for a road when the accident happened.

The truck was approximately 150 yards off the boat launch, according to a release issued by the City of Muskego Police Department.

3. I actually feel sorry for that driver...
He is going to be the butt of so many jokes around the office for months.

"Hey Charlie, want some ice water?" :-)

2. I hope their irony meters were well tuned
so that they could get a laugh about this. What kind of a jizzbag drives a heavy van on the ice to do a story about the ice being too thin. Get a brain, moran.

6. There are always several vehicles a year that go through the ice here in Wisconsin
Though not with such irony. I wonder how WDJT-TV is going to be reporting this story?

10. NO doubt!
I can't wait until 5pm when the channel 12 news comes on, I hope they mention this story again.

11. This story made it as an aside in our local morning news!

:hi:

On edit: All the way in SoCal, no less. It probably bumped some cheesy story about a local D-list celebrity!

:rofl:

12. And I bet THEY were laughing their asses off too!
Now all we need is Keith Olbermann putting this on his "Oddball" segment, and that dumb driver will end up going into hiding somewhere. :rofl:

14. There's video at the link now.
The funniest part was at the end of the video, where Channel 58 didn't return a phone call. :rofl:

19. Natural Selection


....happens every year, usually not with news trucks. Seriously sucks for those guys.

Lots of snowmobiles here go through the ice, those puppies sink quick.

Cheers
