This fellow was fishing by the river, standing a little too close to the edge for my comfort level. As I walked around where he was standing I noticed the ice he was standing on had broken off and he was actually floating with the current, still casting into the river. I thought to myself that looks dangerous. And as I was leaving, a fire truck and the Fire Department river rescue truck and boat raced by me with sirens on. I didn't read about the incident the next day, but I wondered...coincidence? I think not.

If those waders fill up with water, he's a goner.

Another nominee for a Darwin Award. Some people just don't get it. Nice pic of the cast in that second one though MBrager.

Indeed. Darwin Award is in order. Very well spotted and executed, Michael. Did you sell the pics to the Herald???
