Police Warns Public over Frozen Reykjavík Pond

The Reykjavík Metropolitan Police have warned people about walking on the Reykjavík Pond (Tjörnin) in the center of the capital as the ice is unsafe in places.

Yesterday, the ice collapsed underneath a cyclist. Police and medical personnel arrived on the scene but the boy’s injuries were not considered serious, visir.is reports.

When the pond is frozen solid, it is a favorite location for skating and ice hockey, and even horse riding, although that resulted in an accident a few years back.
