Norwegian Guy Plunges Into Frozen Lake To Rescue Drowning Duck

ADVERTISEMENT

When this bearded badass in Norway saw a duck trapped under the ice on the surface of a lake, he didn’t hesitate to leap into the frigid lake, shattering the ice, rescuing the duck and making a new feathered friend in the process!

As crazy as jumping into an icy lake may seem to most of us, that’s exactly what 36-year-old ice bather (and duck rescuer) Lars Jørun Langøien was already there to do anyway. When he spotted the duck, he was already in swimwear, so he simply dove in to rescue it and give it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Now, some people are calling Langøien Karl, King of Ducks, and the name certainly fits!

More info: vg.no (h/t: iBleedOrange)

This duck was out for a casual walk on the frozen lake

Suddenly, the poor schmuck  got trapped under the ice!

Just its luck – Lars jumped into the freezing water to save the day!

All hail Lars, the new King of Ducks!

There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw

For what 5 minutes? Humanity as a whole is disgusting. It's individuals that shine. Individuals like Lars.
