Ellie Goulding Nearly Dies In Norway
Goulding took to Instagram earlier this week to share the harrowing experience she had while riding in a BV206 belt wagon across a frozen lake in the Scandinavian country.
“Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30,” she captioned a picture of the scene. “Note to self don’t drive a BV206 over a frozen lake.”
Photographer Conor McDonnell, her companion on the dangerous ride, gave a more detailed description of the incident that nearly led to their drownings. “So me and @elliegoulding weren’t going to post about this but we decided that it’s too mad of a story not to tell. This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago,” McDonnell wrote. “That moment when you’re in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof.” “Oh shit we’re in’ was my first thought. Second was to take photos,” McDonnell added. “We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good ?.”
Goulding released her latest album, Delirium, last November. She’ll be kicking off the North American leg of the tour for the album in April in Vancouver. The tour will run through June, culminating in a concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
