How does this happen? Earlier today a man was seen walking across a frozen Lake Michigan then rescued by Chicago Fire Dept. According to Jason Lach of Chicago Fire, the man was a college student who was unaware he was walking on the lake. While I don't really believe him, I, like many others, are just happy he's okay and was able to get rescued pretty easily. Hopefully someone's checking in on him. You really just don't walk on Lake Michigan. You good bro? Maybe chill on the The Dark Knight Rises and Station Eleven. More info and clips of the man making his trek below.
