SALT LAKE CITY -- Several Utahns braved the frigid water of the Great Salt Lake Wednesday as they celebrated New Year's Day with a polar plunge.

Members of the Wasatch Front Polar Bear Club jumped in and swam several hundred yards. FOX 13 News' Dave Nemeth was there as the thrill-seekers submerged, see the video above for his live report.
