    Great video! I would suggest for everyone to get a float suit/hypothermia suit if your going to be on the ice.
     
  8. Great video absolutely. Take it from someone who actually went in some years ago, me:( . Elbows up on the ice and kick then roll sideways until your a safe distance from the spot then run like hell for land. Hard lesson learned but a good one. And a totally new repect for the hard water with some perspective on what to do. Everyone needs to see this. Have fun but by all means be safe and be on the defensive about what could happen.
    Remember NO ICE IS SAFE.

    Nice video. I was unfortunate or unlikely when I was 16 years old(27 years ago) to go completely thru while towing a heavy sled of gear behind me. Someone had cut a hole about 2 ft. by 3 ft. in the ice and overnight it had froze over and dusted with snow. I went through it in the dark and had real trouble finding the hole again from underneath the ice. punching up I finally found it....finally pulled out , left gear and got to the car to warm up...luckilly that was the last time going through
     
  11. Portage Lakes, Old State Park: ONE ICER FELL THROUGH THE ICE ON TUESDAY, 12/21. IT WAS HIS OWN FAULT B/C HE WAS FISHING ON ICE LESS THAN 1 1/2"... TOWARDS THE FLAG POLE. LUCKILY, HIS HAND SPIKES AIDED HIM IN GETTING OUT AND NOT HAVING AN EARLY TRAGEDY.

    Everyone should carry ice spikes to help pull themselves out. Chances are you won't fall through a hole as big as the one in the video so you may not be able to kick your feet as easily as he did so the spikes could make all the difference in the world.
