Polar Plunge
Cassie Loeffler, left, clings to her cousin Brooke Clark after she stripped to her underwear to make a commiserating plunge after Clark fell off her paddle board and into the water while serving as a lifeguard for the 32nd annual Polar Bear Plunge held Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. "I wasn't planning on going," Loeffler said. "But I felt bad that she fell in so I figured I couldn't let her be cold by herself." (AP Photo/Coeur d'Alene Press, Jerome A. Pollos) MANDATORY CREDIT
