The ice broke from the rest like brittle frosting on a cake.

The polar bear floats endlessly out into the ocean, with no hope whatsoever as the ice below her is rapidly melting under her massive fluffy feet. Chunks as big as couches were slowly disintegrating into the icy depths below.

Is she going to make it?
