My niece sent me this video from youtube Happens to be someone they knew who owned the truck only to get it to shore and have this happen...


YouTube - Cedar Pond Milan NH

Article in newspaper: Ice conditions are unpredictable as Shawn Maddalena from Milan learned the hard way. Maddalena started
off his day on Sunday hoping to catch his limit of smelt at Cedar Pond. After setting up his bob house someone
noticed his truck tilting, he immediately jumped in the truck and tried to drive it off the pond. It was too
late and the truck sunk to the bottom. Luckily Maddelena narrowly escaped through the cab window. There
was a large group of people who were hired to retrieve the truck on Monday, including divers, loggers, and
a skidder operator. The deep snow covering the ice has made unsafe ice conditions. All the bob houses were
moved off the ice, until colder temperatures arrive.

Danielle,

I know exactly were this is!!!! I looked at a cottage/camp on that pond, it's a nice spot . Always see fish huts on the pond there. We usually go down by the dam on the Androscoggin to ice fish (brown trout).I think it's still a little early to be driving on the ice, but people are setting up their campers anyway.

I used to go swimming at that pond when i was a kid. But yes, most people wait until February when the coldest part of winter has come already. I was never one who liked to be on the iced over ponds. My brother would take me on Acres pond where he lived all the time with the snowmobiles and i would just go as fast as i could (with my eyes barely open) just to get across and hope i made it without falling in.

Actually people are out there much sooner than that in northern NH. Problem this year was the amount of snow and how early we got it. It acted as an insulation for the ice and the ice never got thick

Add snowmobiling to that list. A few guys were tooling around last winter on the lake when they realized they weren't on ice anymore. Granted, you can go quite a ways skimming if you're going fast enough--and these guys went THREE MILES.

Well, two of them did, anyway.

My brother scared me once. I was on a snow machine following him on his and he knew the ice was still thick under about 6" of slush but didn't tell me. He took me right through the middle of it and i thought i was done. Scared the poop out of me. I'm petrified of deep water to begin with forget freezing cold water. That's my brother though. Always pulling a fast one on me.
