Grandma Poses for Picture on “Iceberg Throne” – and is Washed Out to Sea!

In this age of social media, “going viral” can be a good or bad thing, depending upon how you got there. Here’s a grandmother that became an overnight internet sensation when a simple picture session turns crazy and the result was snapped and posted online by her granddaughter.

77-year-old Judith Streng was on vacation with her family to beautiful Diamond Beach in Iceland. As they were looking at icebergs in the water, Judith noticed one that was “shaped like a throne” and decided to get a picture snapped with her sitting in it.

But the story takes an unexpected turn when the block of ice starts to wobble. A huge wave breaks the connection to the beach and sweeps the iceberg from the shore. The fun moments turn into times of worry as she keeps floating farther away from safety.

Fortunately, her son calls for help, and the Coast Guard bring her back to the shore with nothing more than some wet clothes. Despite the dangerous situation, Judith is upbeat and even describes the whole experience as exhilarating.
