Grandma Sitting on Iceberg to Pose for Photo Gets Carried Out to Sea


A grandma is making waves online after a series of viral photos show her getting swept out to sea while sitting on an iceberg. She had sat on the “ice throne” to pose for a photo when the ice got carried away.

ABC News reports that Judith Streng was visiting Iceland’s Diamond Beach in Jökulsárlón with her son Rod when she noticed the throne-like formation. But as she posed on the iceberg while Rod snapped a photo, a wave crashed onto the beach and pulled the iceberg into the ocean with Judith still on it.

“When I got on it, it started to totter and a wave was coming in,” Streng tells ABC News. “A very large wave came in and kind of made the throne kind of rock, and I could tell that I was slipping off.”
