Singer Ellie Goulding has revealed her car crashed through a frozen lake in Norway, after which she and photographer Conor McDonnell had to climb through the roof of the vehicle to escape.
“So me and @elliegoulding weren’t going to post about this but we decided that it’s too mad of a story not to tell,” McDonnell captioned in an Instagram photo of the event.
He goes on to explain that the duo was driving in the pitch black of Norway a few weeks ago when their car crashed through the middle of an icy lake and disappeared under water within minutes.
McDonnell managed to take a photo of the submerged vehicle before it sank.
Goulding posted a throwback picture on Tuesday about the incident, captioning the image, “Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30… Note to self don’t drive a BV206 over a frozen lake.”

So me and @elliegoulding weren't going to post about this but we decided that it's too mad of a story not to tell. This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago – That moment when you're in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof. "Oh shit we're in" was my first though. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good ????
