Brrrrr! It’s literally freezing outside, what should we do? I know, let’s go for a swim!
That appears to have been the train of thought for a group of brave aunties and uncles in Shenyang yesterday. With the mercury dropping well below freezing in the city, hitting a low of minus 19 degrees Celsius, they traveled to the frozen-over Hun River, cut a hole in the ice, and took a plunge.
After looking through the photos, many netizens expressed their worries about the health of the aunties and uncles, particularly when taking the bus back home. Others declared that it might be time for a long winter vacation to Sanya.
Well, at least they didn’t go in naked, as is the style in Chongqing.
