The first day of winter will come next week, and as the temperature continues to drop, lakes and ponds will begin freezing over. Whenever you think there is a chance of the ice being too thin, stay off the ice altogether. 

This video shows what the body goes through when you fall into water just 2 degrees above freezing and how best to survive this scenario.  

Thank you to Mario Vittone for sharing a great water safety video.
