Rickey Coleman is okay, his car?
Coleman's Honda Accord is trapped in the ice.
Coleman got stuck when a water main ruptured early Friday morning..
The two feet of water quickly froze and trapped Coleman's car, plus three others.
Coleman got out of his, and walked through the freezing water.

Firefighters rescued the other trapped drivers and passengers.
Their cars remain frozen in place.

Detroit Public Works crews break up the ice, as they try to lower the water level.
It will also give tow truck operators a chance to free the cars.
Rickey Coleman watches from a nearby parking lot.
He's warmer, thanks to a change of clothes.

Coleman can get home.
But, his car is not going anywhere for awhile.
