A grandmother posing for a picture on an "ice throne" was swept out to sea and had to be rescued by a passing boat, but she's taking the ordeal quite well.
During a recent trip to Iceland, Judith Streng went to Diamond Beach in Jökulsárlón with her son. While there, they saw a piece of ice resembling a throne that several children were taking pictures on, and Streng decided to follow suit. Unfortunately for her, once she got on the ice throne, a large wave came crashing in and dislodged it, then pulled the entire thing out to sea with her still on it.
Thankfully, Randy Lacount, a boat captain from Florida, happened to be on the water and was well versed in water rescues, so he quickly jumped into action. Lacount was able to rescue Streng without an issue, but not before her son captured a second picture of the Iceberg Queen being carried away, looking remarkably calm and pleasant given the circumstances. Her granddaughter, Catherine, said: "When I first got the text, I laughed out loud at work, because that's just so something that would happen to my family."
