Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A couple is lucky to be alive after their truck plunged through a frozen lake while trying to take a shortcut to the other side, according to police in Canada.
Manitoba police said that they received a 911 call from Ko'ona Cochrane and her fiance Ivon Saber, after their truck plunged through the ice of Lake Winnipeg.
Cochrane said that the incident unfolded while they were trying to visit a family member on the other side of the lake. They decided to take a shortcut and drive over the frozen lake in order to save themselves two hours of driving.
Cochrane used her phone to record the journey over the frozen lake. Suddenly, Saber noticed cracks in the ice and slowed down.
Moments later, the truck plunged throughout the ice of the lake. Saber can be heard screaming "bail," as the phone recorded the truck quickly sinking into the lake.
Luckily, the couple managed to get out of the truck through an open window before the truck completely sank underwater. They climbed onto the ice and began to walk to shore.
They also called 911 to report what happened. When the arrived to shore, police and paramedics were waiting for them.
The couple was cold, but unharmed. Their truck was totally destroyed.

*--- It's The Way He Would Have Wanted to Go ---*
A deceased man got a bizarre and seductive send-off when women started twerking on his coffin. A video of the incident from Mexico showed mourners gathering to pay their respects to the man before he was laid to rest. While the wooden coffin was sitting on top of two motorcycles, women got on top and began twerking. Reggae music was blasting while the upbeat crowd seemed to be enjoying the show. At first, one woman began dancing and twerking on the coffin. A female onlooker grabbed the dancer's skirt, exposing her underwear. She then spanked the dancer's backside and threw water on her. A second woman in tight leggings then joined her and also twerked on top of the coffin. The video was posted with the caption: 'When Brayan dies.' The video has been seen more than 36,500 times.
*------------- Parking Lot Pimping? -------------*
Walmart called an incident of two men riding horses through a Houston store a "reckless stunt." Woody Fields recorded a video from atop his horse as he rode through the Walmart in Houston. The ride elicits many amazed looks from customers, especially young ones enamored of the horse. Security personnel are seen in the video, but take no action to stop the man or his horse. Fields, who was joined inside the store by another man on a horse, told local news he and the other man were going "parking lot pimping" when they decided on a whim to go inside the store. Fields said the other man also had his horse inside the store for a time and one of the equines relieved itself inside the store. "I was just trying to make people smile and laugh," Fields said. "I wasn't trying to hurt nobody, or do anything destructive. It was just, like, you only live once, you know?" The Houston Humane Society also released a statement about the incident. "At minimum, riding a horse inside a store is incredibly irresponsible. This would be extremely stressful on any horse. The Houston Humane Society urges all pet owners to think and act responsibly when it comes to the lives of animals in their care."

How hard do you think the police will work to find the original owners of the gold coins since they keep the coins only if they fail? -Tim
