Baby Dies After SUV Falls Through Thin Ice at Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota

Being from California, I just didn't understand this story at first. Did the SUV careen over the road? Did it go over the side of a bridge and crash down into the icy water? No. It turns out that people drive on the frozen lake, and in this case, the baby's father drove on the ice despite warnings from local law enforcement of very dangerous (thin ice) conditions.

At London's Daily Mail, "Baby girl drowns strapped in her car-seat after father's SUV plummets through known thin ice spot on frozen Minnesota lake."

God rest that poor baby's soul. I can't believe something like this is even possible.
