    I have been in Spring weather, in a Granite quarry for short swim among the ice.

    This is no simple trick. Even for a good swimmer, this is traumatic to the body and he is to be commended. It is a dangerous and selfless act for the rescuer.

    Good show Officer

    That took guts! Well done, officer!

    Unless you've done it, you can't imagine how difficult it is to stay afloat in body armor, boots and gun. If you work where there is the chance you could end up in the water you will be well served by taking a marine survival course.

    Kudos to the officer, and he wasn't even wearing his hat.

    There appeared to be guard rails everywhere.
