Ellie Goulding wants to share some advice – don't drive a BV206 over a frozen lake.

Goulding and photographer Conor McDonnell survived what was no doubt a terrifying experience in Norway recently.

According to McDonnell's account on Instagram, the two were traveling in an all-terrain vehicle when it plunged through ice into a frozen lake.

"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," he wrote.

"This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago - 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. 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."

Scary stuff.

Goudling shared the same photo herself, saying,

"Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30... Note to self don't drive a BV206 over a frozen lake."

Goulding is currently touring Europe.
