Utah State Parks ensures their rangers are ready for anything, and in winter, that can mean accidents involving icy water. Amanda Jones went along on an Ice Rescue training mission where she jumped into the frozen lake herself! Luckily, she stayed safely dry, but she lost a little cognitive function as her mind struggled to reconcile being warm in a frozen lake!
