Safety Rescue: Water Ice Rescue Tool

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I was in Alpena MI (near the U.P.) around New Years. All the kids were playing on a frozen lake. This ol' boy just couldn't do it. I'm sure the ice was plenty thick enough, but I couldn't shake that feeling someone was about to disappear.

Anyone ever been hypothermic? Bad hypothermic? I have. Like that. In ice water. You go bad in a few minutes.

Can't hang onto anything, can't think, can't function. Guys fiddling with devices on shore while someone's going bad is not the best way to do it.

Same with drowning. Anyone seen someone drown? It's not like TV. It's real quiet and quick. Everything seems fine, calm, in control. Then, gone.
