Glad you're OK! That reminds me of 10 yrs ago when Charlie & I studded up our bikes & went ice racing. One morning, under 15 degrees, we are going toward the pond, following the outlet stream. We are on ice, but only 10 feet from shore. Well, Charlie's in front, we're going maybe 20 MPH. All of a sudden he goes through the ice. Over the handle bars he goes & makes a perfect flying eagle Charlie shaped hole in the ice. If it wasn't so friggin' cold it would have been funny. He was in waist deep water. I had a strap with me. I tied it to a tree and tossed it to him. We got his bike out, then him. We left his bike and rode double the 10 minutes back to my house. I stood on the pegs, he sat with his face in a poor position. LOL He was some cold by the time we got to a warm room! Later we went back for the bike. A new spark plug, kicked the water out & she drove home.
