Plane down Lake Eyre North?

I had a guy hire a C172 a few years ago experience "carburettor ice" and land on Lake Frome. It was going well until he tried turning around to take off after the "ice melted". Net result got stuck. Had to fly / drive LAME in with 8.00 tyres and many yards of carpet. Said aircraft flew out a week later.
