Pocket knife credited for saving man’s life

090211024524_truck_unstuckMaple Grove, Minn- Last week a driver who fell through the ice credits his pocket knife for helping save his life.

David Gangelhoff was delivering a truck load of sand across the Fish Lake which usually is 2 feet thick when his truck hit a patch of thin ice causing his truck to sink like a rock with him inside.

Once his cab filled with water David was able to swim out of his open window, but once he reached the surface he had to use the knife to pull up from the water.

Video story from Fox 9 clearly points to knife saving his life.
