    Last saturday night there was a huge ice fishing derby. 3 people on sleds where riding there sleds at 8PM. When they hit open water on sebago lake. 2 of them made it 3 miles across the lake. The other made it about 1 mile then his friends lost site of him. They found his sled But I don't think they found him yet. Talk about a sucky way to die.
    Here is a link to a story about it:

    sled riding across water is amazingly fun.

    sad to hear a rider going down.

    not expecting that has to be the scariest thing I can think of happening.
