Wind turbine with ice on blades

Residents inside this industrial wind farm in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin were told that ice throw from turbine blades isn't a problem. They were told that if ice forms on the blades, the turbine automatically shuts down. After seeing a piece of ice the size of a bed sheet come flying down from this wind turbine, the resident who shot this video decided to get out his video camera.
