Former NHL enforcer John Scott managed to escape a horrifying, near-death incident on a lake behind his home in Traverse City, Michigan over the weekend. As the year-old prepared to clear some snow off the lake to make a backyard skating rink for him and his family Sunday, the icy surface gave way and Scott plunged into the freezing water below.
Luckily, he fell through right next to his dock and was eventually able to pull himself out of the lake, though not without a significant struggle. Scott recounted that struggle in an interview with The Athletic 's Chris Kuc.
Scott estimates that he was in the frigid water for around a minute as one of his shoes and a shovel sunk to the depths of the lake. After pulling himself out of the water, Scott had to gather himself and regroup with his family.
