But his focus turned to the driver – not to save, but to why he had driven on the river in the first place. Comments on Twitter suggest he may have headed north along the river from Kemptville, 30 miles[30 km]away.

Ottawa paramedics also visited the scene, but said the only occupant of the car did not want to be tested, and police said the driver was not injured.

“Fortunately there are no injuries and the extraordinary work of the locals rescuing the driver by using kayak and quick thinking,” Ottawa police wrote on Twitter.

As he stood at the rear window of his car waiting for help, he settled down enough to draw himself a smile. Prior to the rescue, the vehicle was so submerged that one side of the roof was visible. He was able to climb on a kayak and pull along the riverbank.

Police say the driver is charged with one count of felony criminal mischief.

“This part of the river has very little ice compared with other parts of the river,” police said in a statement. “Snowfall at this time of the year can be very subtle. Ottawa police want to remind residents not to get off the ice and remember ‘No Ice and Ice Safe.’ ”

The vehicle remained in the river and police warned that “it could be dangerous for people who want to know what is going on on the ice.”
