Car frozen in New York: 'I'll need a sledgehammer'

A leaky pipe under a Manhattan street encased a parked car in ice and caused the pavement to sink over the weekend.

When Pete, the owner of the vehicle, was finally able to get into the car to run the engine and warm it up, the heat inside the vehicle combined with the ice outside caused the rear window to shatter.

"It could be worse like if that was me or a family member covered in ice, that wouldn't be good; so it's all relative," said Pete.
