How do you end up requiring hospitalization from falling through a pond in a park?

They were later given tickets for "unlawful ice activity."


"What are you in for?"

"Strangled one guy, beat another dude half to death with a chain.  And you?"

"Unlawful ice activity."

I'll bet my left nut that the Leafs try to draft them in '14.

"Two Bronx men were rescued after falling through the ice on the Central Park Pond Tuesday afternoon ...The men, 19 and 20, were taking pictures on the snow-covered pond ... The teens and one NYPD officer who went into the water were all taken to the hospital with injuries that were described as not life-threatening."

I feel kind-of bad for them. They were demoted from "men" to "teens" by the end of the article.

I don't know. Why don't you fall into an icy pond in a park and let us know? Think of it as an experiment for the edification of Fark.

And the one guy is only 20-teen!

Could be mild hypothermia, maybe some cuts/bruises, or even just SOP for the NYPD to send them to the hospital when an officer is involved in these types of rescues.

Fargin' ice holes.

Not that I want to start an argument about climate change - I really don't, beleive me.

It seems rather odd that when I was a kid (say 30 years ago), we routinely waited for the temp to drop below freezing for a few days so that all the local ponds would freeze, and then we could all go skating.  It was like that every year.  All of over the state of NJ, this was taking place.  Pretty much the entire northeast had this priveledge.  It was extremely rare when anyone fell in.  And, mind you, I had gone skating on very large, man-made lakes, that weren't entirely frozen - and the frozen parts were still strong enough to hold 30 some-odd people playing hockey.

Nowadays, even during the coldest of coldsnaps, they do not allow skating on ponds.  And people are falling through the ice when they defy the rules.  Some poor woman in Lambertville, just a couple of weeks ago, fell into the canal - which by all accounts was frozen SOLID.  If you've been following the news, she didn't make it.

So what is going on here?  Is the water temperature on average staying so high that the ice is weak and feable compared to 30 years ago?

You sure it isn't people getting fatter?

Is the water in NY so polluted that it doesn't freeze, or what? We have well over a foot of ice on everything here. You could drive a loaded semi across most lakes without any problems. I mean, your mom probably wouldn't want to risk it, but anyone under 5,000 pounds should be perfectly safe.

I wonder what 'lawful ice activity' is?

Walk on the icy pond? fark that. I use a chunk of wood to break a hole in the ice to get at the 'thin ice' sign so I can put it back up.
