The story happened two years ago in winter, during the holidays. 1 was in a village with my grandparents. One day my friends there offered to go fishing on a frozen pond. I have never done that before so agreed immediately. My grandparents were against it, but I convinced them I would be ok and they let me go. Two days later we went to the pond early in the morning. The weather was frosty, but we were happy and were looking forward to having much fun. There were four of us and we had all necessary equipment.
At first everything was excellent. We made holes in the ice and within an hour we had some three-four fish each. Soon, one of my friends, Dima, decided to go along the bank to stretch his legs and pick up some cane. He was walking on the edge of the bank and then suddenly slipped and slid down. He hit the ice heavily and his legs broke it. so the next moment his feet were in the water. The ice on the bank was so slanting and flat that when he tried to move or stand up, he was slowly sliding down more. My other friend Oleh cried to Dima that he should lie there still or he would go into the water completely. Then Oleh told us to take off our coats, we tied them by the sleeves and threw one of the ends to Dima. After a while, we managed to pull him up.
He was cold and we started collecting our things to go home. In the end, everything finished OK. we just got a bit scared and Dima got his legs frozen a little. Now. two years later we recall this incident with a smile.
