A frigid training session
By FRITZ MAYER
LAKE HUNTINGTON, NYAs the snow fell and the frigid wind blew, dozens of volunteer firefighters took turns rescuing each other from a would-be watery death. The day-long training session was staged on Lake Huntington on Saturday, February 21. While some men inched along the ice on their bellies toward a victim, others stood onshore, ready to pull the victim to safety with long yellow ropes.
More than one person witnessing the scene said, Those guys are working their butts off.
