A BEAMING gran poses for a tourist snap on her ice “throne” – before being swept out to SEA.
Dramatic photos show stunned Judith Streng floating off Iceland’s southern shore after the photo-op quickly went from icy to dicey.
The American, who was holidaying on the volcanic island this week with her son Rod, needed to be rescued after the Icelandic coastguard was scrambled.
Texan Judith told ABC News: “It was shaped like an easy place to sit.
“You can tell by looking at the shape of it, and I thought well it looks like fun.
“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.”
The panicked gran was dragged out into the water while still sitting on her icy perch.
Luckily the captain of a nearby rescue boat spotted her.
Judith’s granddaughter Catherine received the hilarious series of photos from dad Rob showing how the drama unfolded.
The first shows her grinning granny posing on the iceberg throne with the caption: “Iceberg queen”.
Next sees Judith suddenly out in the ocean, saying: “Lost her kingdom when she drifted out to sea!”
A third photo of her even further from the shore was captioned: “No joke! A coast guard rescuer had to save her and bring her back to shore.”
