I never really understood why people frolic on frozen ponds during the winter time. From ice skating to silly stunts in viral videos, it baffles me how they all seem so unconcerned with the fact that literally at times skating on thin ice.

I watch the videos thinking, "What if they fall through? Will they get swept away by the undertow? Is there an undertow in a lake? What if they fall through a thin section of ice, but the rest of the ice is really thick? How will they save themselves?"  So many questions, with very few answers....until now.

Check out the following video that explains, in detail, how to rescue yourself if you've fallen through the ice.
