You may have read the story of Tom Smitheringale & how he revealed how close he came to perishing in an icy grave in the last few days. The explorer survived falling through ice into freezing water during his solo expedition to the North Pole, sustaining only mild hypothermia and frostbite on some fingers. The Perth man activated an emergency beacon after the fall and rescue crews dashed to retrieve him.

Smitheringale set out from Canada on February 26 in an attempt to be the first Australian, and third person in history, to ski unaided to the geographic North Pole.

It took about nine hours for rescuers to reach Smitheringale after the EPIRB beacon was activated.

I thought about that ...... Smitheringale was a personal trainer & it must have been a humbling experience to have to set off the rescue alarm???
