Kevin Wiseman often plows paths in the backwoods of Quebec for a local snowmobile club, but the good deed turned into a traumatic event on Wednesday’.
Kevin and his 40-year-old wife Audrey Berndt were riding their snowcat through the Canadian wilderness when they took a turn onto what they thought was an empty field. By the time they realized it was actually the frozen McMullin Lake, near Val-des-Monts, it was too late.
The couple tried to turn back, but the snowcat plunged through the ice. The vehicle sunk 12 feet before it hit the bottom and the cab started filling up with icy water. When Kevin was unable to punch through the windshield, he head-butted the glass until it broke.
He resurfaced only to find that his wife was still trapped underwater.
Kevin dove back into the freezing waters three different times before he finally found Audrey and hauled her onto dry land.
“Something in my head said, ‘You are going back under. You’re staying there, if you don’t have your wife,’” Kevin told CBC.

That’s bravery in action. It’s essentially saving your partner.
I wish I could have save my wife.
But, one has to take the opportunities one is given.
Good job by this fellow.
