Person has fallen into the water.

Others are beginning to relieve person from his problem.

Here another person broke through the ice and cried out "HELP!"

Others are practicing a rescue mission.  

Wilmette Coast Guard preparing for a rescue mission.  The skies are blue.  It is a sunny day but very cold out.  Several days before Lake Michigan in this bay had melted all the ice and now this is all new ice forming. Some areas a person could safely walk but other areas a person would break through the ice into the frigid water.   Both my husband and I have never viewed this exercise before.   What a surprise!


  1. this must have been very interesting to watch.

  2. That would have been interesting to watch. Thankfully it's an exercise, and not someone without help nearby.


  3. Sometimes people just do not use good judgment.

  4. Thankfully it was an excersice... but it must have been very cold for those people in the water.

  5. They swam in a cold water? Wow...truly a rescue mission

  6. Wow, that must have been amazing to watch. Too cold for me and I love to swim.
