Temperatures across the Atlantic dipped so low during the ‘bomb cyclone’ that the ocean froze over in Massachusetts and one man captured footage of the astonishing scenes.

Ryan Canty posted a video to his YouTube channel showing his family joking around on top of frozen waves at Old Silver Beach in Falmouth.

At one point Mr Canty says: ‘Who wants to go swimming?’

The ocean waves are frozen solid to the point where people can easily walk across them without worrying about plunging into the icy depths.

Ocean water freezes at a lower temperature than plain water due to the salt content, freezing at around -2C (28.4F).

Posting the video to Reddit, Mr Canty said that his grandmother, who lives in the area, has only seen the ocean freeze over like this three times in the past 80 years.

In the video, Mr Canty is heard saying that ‘it looks like Antarctica right now’.

The incredible clip has been viewed nearly 700,000 times since being posted yesterday.

One commenter said: ‘That’s in Massachusetts?! That looks like that would be in GREENLAND! HOLY MACARONI.’

Another said: ‘The real question is how deep is the water frozen?

”Cause that s*** was giving me anxiety just watching them walking over it’
