ABS Issue

I have a 2003 CLK 55 and I was travelling at around 50km/h on a snowy road, when i mashed the brakes to stop, the ABS came on at first but the sound faded away after a second or two even tho my wheels where still turning (I could steer my car) and I was moving forward at about 20km/h. I could not press down on my brakes at all, it had gotten completely stiff.

The abs light in the dash has never lit up before and my mechanic tells me that if the lights off there cant be any problems with the abs system. However I seriously doubt the ABS system was designed to work this way lol. Has this ever happened to anyone before? and I was wondering is this indicates a problem with my ABS pump? or some other component?
