Years ago, I saw a story on the news about an incident in Detroit. Neighbors caught a guy burglarizing a house, one of many in the neighborhood. They said he was injured when he slipped on the ice. When the newsbabe asked one citizen how he broke both arms, a leg, his nose and several ribs, the older gentleman looked into the camera and said “It was awfully slippery ice.”
