ACTON, Ca. (WTVR) -- A day of sledding on Christmas Day goes wrong when a man on a sled goes a little too far on the ice.

You can see as the man falls through the thin ice. Luckily, plenty of people were there to see it happen and rescue the man. Yet during the rescue attempt people walked gingerly across the thin ice only to fall in themselves.

Some of the victims were stuck in the icy water for up to nine minutes before they were pulled out.

No one was seriously injured.
