Tourists driftaway (and then are rescued) while dining on ice floeSTART
article yog-5u An Icelandic lake. (Thinkstock)If you're dining on an ice floe
, first be sure it's firmly attached to land. If not, you might end up like a group of American tourists who had to be rescued after they floated 10 meters (33 feet) from shore.The Iceland Review
reports that the travelers, who were at the Fjallsárlón glacial lagoon in East Iceland, had set up a table and chairs on the ice floe with plans to eat dinner. But then a strong gust of wind came along and the floe detached. The next thing the tourists knew, they were drifting away.Luckily, one of the diners was able to jump onto dry land before the ice drifted too far and called an emergency crew, according to the Reykjavik Grapevine
. Páll Sigurður Vignisson, a member of the rescue team, spoke to Iceland Review about the unexpected rescue mission."When we arrived it was quite comical to see them sitting on chairs and with a table on an iceberg. ... Yes the dinner was over," Vignisson told the paper. He added that the tourists, who were rescued by boat, seemed oddly calm considering ice floes have a tendency to capsize without warning.google_ad_section_end EDITORS NOTE: WHAT IS MISSING FROM THIS PHOTO??POLAR BEARS, WHAT WITH GLOBAL WARMING AND PEOPLE WHO JUST KILL THE BEARS, WHAT IS GOING ON WHEN PEOPLE GET RESCUED??????
