Exclamation NH-DoT rescues drowning jet-skier, Alton-Lake Winnipesaukee

Nov 30, Thursday morning, somewhere in Alton NH, Rt-11, on Lake Winnipesaukee, a jet-skier without a pfd comes close to drowning the cold water after his jet-ski sinks. A nearby NH-DoT crew hears his screams and paddles out to his rescue in a borrowed kayak and canoe that was stored on shore, somewhere.

I think that people tend to hit the panic button when first hitting the cold water which makes their drowning situation, much worse. Just cover your mouth, don't inhale any water, don't panic in the icy cold water. The first two minutes are the worst. If you survive the first two minutes, you can swim to safety for another 15-minutes even in 34-degree water.
... down and out, liv'n that Walmart side of the lake!
