After the car sank in a frozen lake in the Ottawa region, in Canada
A woman got into the car and took a selfie. The conductor entered the Rideau River, which was partially frozen, last Sunday (16), around 4:30 p.m.

Two residents used kayaks and rope to get the woman out of the car and leave her in a safe place. However, during the process, she positioned herself in the back of the car and stopped to take a selfie.
Zachary King, one of the lifeguards, told CTV News Ottawa
. He said he was shocked to see the woman stopping the rescue to take a photo. “We pulled her outside and said, ‘What the hell were you doing?'” ”
According to the newspaper, the driver has been charged with operating a vehicle dangerously under the Canadian Penal Code.
