Fire brigade and army in Austria removing ice cap from lake

In Carinthia, Southern Austria, the fire brigade and the federal armed forces are demolishing ice on Lake Klopeiner.

The lake is frozen solid and on top there is a giant ice cap, dangerous because of strong winds.

On the South shore the ice plate has been secured with steel cables.

The work will continue for over a week.
