A grandmother has been crowned the Queen of Icebergs! Judith Streng was on a trip to Iceland when she became that grandma. That was after her son attempted to take a photo of her reclining on an ice formation.
The ice throne was located at Diamond Beach in Jökulsárlón. Moments after Streng sat down to pose for the snap, the ice broke off and floated into the water.
Granny Streng told ABC News:
“When I got on it, it started to totter and a wave was coming in,”. “A very large wave came in and kind of made the throne kind of rock, and I could tell that I was slipping off.”

Ms Streng, an English teacher shared a relative’s poetic account of what happened:
“She ascended the throne after a wave had pulled back and left it briefly exposed on the beach. Then a wave washed in and dislodged the ice throne, rocking it from side to side. When the wave retreated, it lifted the dislodged throne and carried her out with the tide.”
