Wisconsin fishermen found themselves fishing for more than the scaly, finned little animals they were after when they decided to park on thin ice. There were so many participants in a fishing tournament that parking was scarce so they parked where ever there was an open space.

The problem being that much of that parking was on ice that was not as thick (only 12 inches) as needed to hold the weight of the cars. There were an estimated 150-200 cars parked in the small ice area. So the ice breaks and the cars plunge.

Some were salvaged, others a total loss. The only person that benefited from this fiasco was the tow-truck driver, who charges anywhere from $500-2000 to pull cars.

Would you be crazy enough to park on ice even if you were fishing to win $100,000?
