Didn't know how to swim and just drank a little, and thought it would be a good idea to go drive across water?

Like I've said before.....

STUPID HURTS!!!!

not trying to be insensitive, just making a point. When riding, keep common sense in mind, and if something doesn't seem like a good idea, or if you get that "funny feeling" in the pit of your stomach, Don't Do It!!!

There is a differance between open water and ice breaking. In open water you have nothing to hold on to, when the chills set in. They say that if you break threw the ice to not try to get out just grab the ice and get your elbows up on it, so it can hold you up while you are having the shivers it only last for about a minute. Then break the ice by pushing down on it until it wont break any more. Then take a minute and build up some strength and all at once kick your legs so you are horizontal then use your arms while you are kicking to get your self up on the ice. Then staying flat roll your body until you are far enough away from the break then crawl then get up and off of the ice do not remove clothing until you are where you can get warm. Some where on here there is a video link about it it's worth while watching. If you are in open water your chances of making it are greatly reduced. Sorry to here that but it happens every year.
