Heroic Moment Passersby Use a Scarf to Rescue an Ice Skater From Ice Hole

Ice skater falls into very cold thin ice and finds himself saved by several passersby and a red scarf.

As China faces its coldest weather in years, an unnamed man was ice skating in Qinghuangdao, Hebei province when the ice broke under his feet and he fell into ice cold water. The man could not have been in a most inopportune time and place when the unfortunate incident happened.

According to the People’s Daily Online, a policeman by the name of Zhang Wei spotted the man when he was out for a walk with his daughter. Zhang Wei immediately rushed to the unnamed ice skater to help him. As the policeman was trained in first aid, Wei knew what to do and used his daughter’s red scarf to try and keep the ice skater afloat. He threw the scarf over the man and tried to pull him out as he saw that the ice skater was having trouble already trying to keep afloat.

It was then that onlookers and other passerby saw what was going on and decided to help the policeman. They rushed over and helped in the rescue operation that was going on. As the ice was very thin, the rescuers lay flat on the cold ice to make sure that the pressure where they are is lighter. After some time, they were able to pull the ice skater out of the cold water and bring him to safety.
