Pedro and Jesus had decided to try ice fishing that cold but sunny Saturday just north of Omaha. Others had warned them about "trusting" March ice, but neither seemed to worry. And even though the unseasonable sunshine had thinned the Platte River ice, Jesus had found a nice solid floe not twenty feet from a gravel bank where both could drop a line to lure some slumbering trout. Even the slow cracking sound didn't alarm Pedro enough to give him a chance to scramble back toward the bank and Jesus. He was sinking over his shoulders in the freezing current and going down fast. Suddenly Jesus grabbed his wrist. For a small man, Jesus had tremendous strength and as he sprawled across the icy sheet, he pulled his shivering companion facilely to safety. As the two men clambered into the warmth of their Toyota truck, Pedro rubbed his soaked and freezing skin and said, "Thanks, bro' I thought I was a goner."
