"An elderly man went through the ice at the Bergnäsbron in Luleå, sweden, on easter Sunday had an almost improbable luck. Members of the diving club Polar was in the vicinity and practiced isdyk and was able to save the man."
"Dykargänget saw in the distance how a skier and com of the occupant against a darker, weaker party, under the bridge where he stopped and seemed to hesitate."
"– But then – while we stand and look on, we see how he takes the kit and begins to stumble. Then he goes right down with my head first straight through the ice, " says the diver, Daniel Mattila for NSD."
"the Divers ran towards the place where the man has gone through the ice, got out to awake and managed to get a rope around the waist of the man. Two of the divers had våtdräkterna in which they had a big advantage."
"– the Ice was very porous and broke down piece by piece when we would take us up to him."
"the Divers brought up the man from the water and brought him up to safer ice. Then also had the emergency services arrived at the location and could assist with värmeväst, blankets and bärgningsflotte. The rescued man was cold but conscious when he was taken to the hospital."
