Two Manitobans had a jolt Tuesday afternoon when their truck passed through the ice on Lake Winnipeg, all live on Facebook Live.
Ko’ona Cochrane and his spouse were driving on ice near Hecla Island, about 150 km north of Winnipeg, when the ice suddenly dropped under their vehicle.
In the video, we can hear Ms. Cochrane’s spouse shout “Bail! (Get out!) Just before the lake water invades the truck’s cabin.
“That’s my life, take that!” Cochrane can be heard yelling, grabbing her belongings before they escaped the truck.
The two escaped unharmed, but their truck sank under water.
“[It’s a] really, really incredibly big bruise on my ego.”
