    That is horrific, so sorry for him and his little boy. . Just another reminder for everyone to be safe no matter the circumstance. That could have been any one of us!

    Yep. I'd have a hard time leaving my quad out on the ice too but after reading a story like this I'd rather let my $500 sink than leave my children fatherless.

    Guess I'll have to pick up a cheap RC car to retrieve my quad if something like this ever happens to me. ;)

    ALWAYS check ice reports before going out if you know you'll be flying over ice. I know my state DNR website posts ice reports for most state parks.

    Wow. So tragic. Weird some one else was talking about ice on a lake earlier. I'm sorry but I'm not going to risk life and limb to save it. I understand wanting to retrieve it but yikes!!!
