Russian Resourcefulness



Just yesterday we had a post about Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world, and now we have a video from there! A Honda SUV that had ventured out on the frozen lake crashed through the ice. According to commenters, Lake Bailkal has no bridges, but there are ferries in the summer, and people drive across on the ice in winter all the time. But this happened in late spring, when the ice was melting.

Now what to do? They can't bring heavy equipment out on the ice, considering what's already happened. So... these guys built their own human-powered winch to haul the car back up! The car survived, and is still in use. The music is Декабрь - Дубинушка. (via Daily Picks and Flicks)
