Car frozen after spending the night next to Lake Erie

The car that was completely frozen after being parked by Lake Erie made a breakthrough on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Workers covered the  car in calcium and pulled and pulled until the ice gave way.

A tow truck went and pulled the slightly defrosted vehicle.

It will probably still be a while before the ice melts completely.
