Weekend Fishing Tournament Turns Disastrous As 36 Vehicles Fall Through Ice
Several guests at a weekend fishing tournament on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin decided to leave their cars on the "frozen" lake when they couldn't find parking.

36 Cars Through Ice at Wisconsin Fishing Tournament-Video

Bad idea.

Turns out the thin ice was unable to hold so many heavy cars parked tightly together and, soon enough, the lake swallowed 36 of them, 18 of which were fully submerged.

Check out the clip above to see for yourself. Fortunately, no one was actually in the cars when they sank, so there were no injuries, but we're sure some of the drivers are in for some serious financial hurt in the very near future.

It has been an usually warm winter up here, I can't believe they drove out on the ice. It's been thin all winter, not a good year for ice fishing.

I have a "yankee" buddy that lives in Maine. The biggest event all year up there is the following explaination....

As soon as the lake freezes, they push a car/truck onto the ice. From there they take bets on what day the vehicle will fall through the ice.

And these are the people who can us rednecks, because of the stupid crap we do?????
