  • Foxey, yes i was a kid, and yes i did some stupid things, walking on very thin ice was not one of them, they are described as a couple of lads, obviously old enough to be out on their own,so old enough to know the risks

  • If people want to walk on thin ice, let them, if they are that stupid in the first place i am pretty sure that their contribution to man-kind will not be missed.

  • Doubt if they will drown in the boating pond, might get their shoes or socks wet though.

  • The fact is , when you go though the ice you can go in at an angle therefore sliding under the ice, disoriented you cant find the break in the ice you came though . Please don't do it .

  • Well that's clever tell 'em not to and they moer than likely will now! Some people just don't have the braincells to think about the dangers involved.
