Dear Parents, Carers and Students
The prolonged cold spell has led to many lakes, rivers and canals freezing over. The temptation for young people to venture onto the ice has sadly left 4 young people dead recently and hopefully this advice will help to prevent any such tragedy in future.
Enclosed is a clip from the movie Breakthrough PG which shows what is like to fall into the ice for anyone proving difficult to get out.
Watch from 3 minutes 20 seconds until the end.
Next: a news clip that tells us that 3 boys died recently from cardiac arrest (Sunday afternoon) in Solihul and another unfortunately passed away after fighting for his life.
Thank you for your attention
