Warm winter days can be a pleasant surprise, unless you have your vehicle parked on the ice.

About a dozen vehicles fell through in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Saturday when temperatures climbed above freezing, according to ABC 7 news.

The station says cars lined up for the town's 21st annual Winter Fest.

But that afternoon, during the judging of an ice sculpture competition, the ice gave way, USA Today reports.

Fox 6 says it took hours for crews to retrieve the vehicles. Some were sinking into water that was up to 15 feet deep.

Luckily, no one was injured.
