Although it's not a public event, anyone who wants to see how cold cold really is could crash a "media opportunity" to see firsthand how Colorado Springs firefighters train to perform ice rescues on lakes and ponds.
It will take place from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 4 at Prospect Lake's northeast corner near the Aquatics and Fitness Center, 280 S. Union Blvd.
During the demonstration, city folk promise to let reporters "participate in an actual ice rescue activity in the water." Talk about throwing cold water on a story!
