Rescue squads from Akureyri were called out twice to help a driver of a Volkswagen Polo stuck in snow at Öxnadalsheiði in Northeast Iceland.
According to information from the Akureyri police, rescue squads were called out on Saturday morning to Öxnadalsheiði to help drivers who became stuck in their cars. Mbl.is reports that some had been stuck thoughout the night. Among them was a man in a Volkswagen Polo, not really a mountain truck.
Around dinnertime that same Saturday, police were contacted again that the very same driver, in the very same Volkswagen Polo, was stuck at the very same place, despite the road being closed to all traffic at the time. The local squad had to be called out again to rescue the man at considerable cost and risk to them, but at no cost to the driver.
