A woman almost drowned today in Concord MA. She was walking on the ice of a pond. This was not a very bright idea, seeing as it has been an average of 50 degrees all week. I could understand if it was a kid, but how could an adult not realize that if she is wearing a t-shirt it is probably a bad idea to walk on ice? Oh well. She lived, so go her.

i'm glad she is okay.
but you're right, she should of known it was a bad idea.
i don't think i'd EVER walk on a lake/river/pond that was frozen. i'd be scared.
i've done it in the past when i was really young but i don't think i'd ever do it again.

i did it over the winter. i was pretty scared, cuz i've never walked on a frozen pond that big. i've only ever ice skated on big holes filled with water for the purpose of ice skating. i'd never gone on a full pond, but i saw a bunch of people really far out on the ice and it looked safe. it was pretty fun... but when i did it it was safe

I hate hearing stories like this. You'd think after a certain age, you'd know not to walk on fuckin' ice, lmao.

omg .. we don't have ponds or any other surface with ice over here but even so I can't imagine doing such a crazy thing:)

Hey was that a news story? Do you have a link handy? I can google it, I know.
I miss seeing frozen water. I used to know a cranberry farmer who would drive a BIG old flat bed pickup out on a lake. I like walking on frozen lakes/ponds. I hadn't thought about that in forever.

i don't have a link. i saw it on the news. there were several drownings and almost drownings over the winter from people walking on thin ice, but in my opinion, this woman was the dumbest cuz the weather was spring like all week and she should have known it would be dangerous. it is fun to go out on a frozen lake. i went out on spy pond this winter. it was pretty cool
