Man Throws Himself into Frozen Lake to Rescue Duck

(Photo: VG)

Last December, Norwegian man Lars Jørun Langøien saw a duck walk on the surface of a frozen lake. The ice was thin and collapsed under the duck. So Langøien dove into the icy water, swimming toward it. Another man, Yngvil Søholt snapped photos of the rescue.

The duck surfaced, but only under the ice. It couldn't break through to breathe. Langøien smashed through the ice and carried the duck to the shore. Then he breathed into its bill in order to resuscitate it. You can see more photos of this thrilling rescue at the tabloid Express.
