How to Survive Falling Through the Ice

It is winter. You are panting with fatigue because for the past 30 minutes you have been running and walking to get away from a band of zombies.

The Art of Manliness has an infographic on surviving a fall through the ice, and some additional advice. Check it out at the link.
