In an unexpected turn of events, this boy ran across a small patch of ice only to be suddenly halted by a thin rope tied between two trees.

Daniel Veteläinen watched on as his friend, Luka attempted to run across a a shallow pond covered in ice at a football field in Kalajoki, Finland.

Luka takes a huge run up to gather speed and dances his way over the ice as it breaks away into the water.

But Luka failed to see was the rope pulled tight in front of the water, catching himself and instantly falls to the ground.

Daniel said: “My friend Luka tried running over ice and he did not see the rope on the other side.

“He wasn’t injured, just his chest hurt for a little while.”
