Man Flips Ice Boat Over In Goose Bay

Occurred on January 18, 2020 / Goose Bay, New York, USA

Info from Licensor: "An iceboat flipped over on the cold St. Lawrence River. The man was trapped, and the boat was filling with water. Sheer will and a bit of luck saved his life as he finally found his way out and then crawled on top of the capsized vessel. At one point, he let his gloves freeze to the top of the boat so he could then use them to help pull himself upon it. Ice Fisherman saw it flip, and called 911. Responders arrived in record time due to having an ice rescue boat nearby because of an ice fishing tournament. the boater was rescued and seemed to have no major injuries. He was just bruised up and cold. Hours later, some guys arrived to retrieve the boat."
