How To Survive Falling Through The Ice

This brave guy was kind enough to demonstrate how to survive falling through the ice of a frozen lake. In the video below he outlines 3 different methods to get out alive. Although, the last one requires the assistance of the local fire department and won’t be of much help in the wild.

A few things to keep in mind.

  1. Don’t try this at home!
  2. These are somewhat ideal circumstances, in that the hole was intentionally made through a thick sheet of ice. In reality ice often breaks in the process of getting out.
  3. Breathing is important! This is a topic for another day, but if you want to learn more, research “The Ice Man”, Wim Hof. He was able to do a marathon above the arctic circle in just a pair of shorts (and no shoes) using his breathing technique.
