Domino Style Rescue Attempt
Q: How many people does it take to rescue one guy who falls into a frozen lake?
A: It depends on weather or not you count the first 12 who try to save him and end up stranded in the same lake.

A sledding excursion turned into a rescue operation after a man fell into a frozen lake in Wrightwood, Calif.

The incident was caught on tape as one person after another tried to save the man only to slip on the ice themselves.
A crowd gathered on shore, frantically screaming for help.
After five minutes, nearly a dozen people were in the water while others throw ropes and inner tubes to no avail.

Nine minutes later, the man who first fell in along with all of his would-be rescuers managed to make it out of the water.
All of them are doing just fine.

If the idiots all standing there ahd laid down in a long chain, there would have only been one in there in the firts place and the rescue would have been straightforward. Never underestimate the danger of ice

Moral of the story is: only idiots go sledging down a hill with a frozen lake at the bottom. Good to see nobody was hurt though.

Moral of story....stay off the ice!!!! Its okay for us trained rescuers to say what should be done in a situation like this, but the general public dont think like rescuers, they dont stop and do risk assessments, they act on inpulse..

They're like lemmings, they see what's happening to people on the ice so even more people gather on the edge and fall through.

Silly Californians, you can already tell the ice is not safe enough to walk on and yet, a bunch of them came to help which caused the ice to give in. Someone should of checked the ice thickness at the other end of the pond first and noticed it wasnt safe.
