A few teenagers were lucky to survive after being swallowed by a frozen-over lake when the ice suddenly cracked and caved in at Nanhu Park, Tangshan, Hebei province.
A woman named Ms.Cheng who was exercising near the scene when the incident occurred told reporters: “I saw two guys and one girl playing on the ice, and suddenly the ice caved in. The first to fall in was the guy and girl, and then the other guy fell in too. All three of them were flapping about.”
Cheng’s exercising partner, Mr.Liu found a wooden stick and used it to help the teens to safety.
“When the three were pulled out of the water, they couldn’t walk,” Ms. Cheng said.
The teenagers were immediately hospitalized and are believed to have made full recoveries.
Thankfully, this Good Samaritan act has been praised. Earlier today we reported that a man in Guangdong province resorted to taking his own life after he was extorted when he saved an elderly man’s life.
