A rescue attempt when a man fell into a frozen lake went all wrong.
At least a dozen people were sledding close to Jackson Lake near Wrightwood, California when the incident happened. One of the sledders went pass the ice’s edge and ended up in the ice cold water.
Mickey Herman, the person who recorded the video and assisted with the rescue, said there was panic at the scene.
“It was just total chaos and out of control We saw that poor guy, the first one to go in, it was obvious he didn’t know how to swim.”
Fortunately, everyone got out safe and no one suffered from hypothermia.
