Self Rescue – Falling Through Ice

/, Risk, Survival, Water Safety/Self Rescue – Falling Through Ice

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 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.
