Toronto Police Tow Jeep Stuck On Lake Ontario Ice

A Toronto driver accidentally stranded himself and his passenger Tuesday after driving onto frozen Lake Ontario.

Toronto Police responded to the scene at Cherry Beach on Tuesday morning where the jeep was stuck on the ice.

"The driver was trying to impress a passenger. I think it was someone trying to be adventurous," Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook took CBC News.

The jeep was sinking in about half-a-metre of water, so police had to use their marine towing equipment to pull the vehicle out, blogTO reported.

Police told CP24 that the driver would foot the bill for their rescue.
