A Finnish woman swims in a frozen lake to treat her broken leg. When she jumps in, I’m speechless.

After a downhill biking accident, Johanna Nordblad thought she might lose her leg. Doctors had to leave the fracture open for 10 days to avoid necrosis. In a last ditch effort, to save the limb, they tried a painful cold-water treatment.
