My grandmother's sister (great aunt, I know) fell through the ice in 1936 when they were skating on a small local lake with the other kids. She was 12 and unfortunately didn't make it. My grandmother was 10 at the time and was there when it happened. I guess her sister gasped from the freezing water and that was about all it took to fill her up with water and drown her before anybody could get to her.

I grew up hearing that story from my grandmother. I imagine it left a pretty traumatic impression. As such, even with very little experience on frozen water I am probably overly cautious.

Glad you made it back home still upright.
