In 2002, my friend and mentor (and maniac) Dr. Gordon Geisbrecht fell – on purpose – through the ice on a frozen lake. He wanted to demonstrate just how those who fall through the ice can survive and help themselves. Advice is also given to amateur and professional rescuers. I ran across the video on YouTube.com and wanted to share. It’s ten minutes that is worth your attention if you participate in ice activities like cross-country skiing or ice fishing. Have a look, and stay safe out there.
