Lebensgefahr! Really!

Abendzeitung carried a story reporting that nineteen people fell through the ice on the lakes around Munich over the weekend.

In the worst case a 38 woman pushing two young children in a pram fell through the ice on Wörthsee. As local residents and the fire brigade tried to rescue her the pram with the children in it also slipped in. Fortunately the rescuers managed to get all three out of the water alive.

The paper also reports that despite attempts by the authorities to restrict access, many people are still try to get through putting their own and their rescuers lives at risk.

Which all just goes to prove that there are no national distinctions when it comes to stupidity.
