Stopped by to take a look at the attempt to break Guinness World Record of sitting in ice. Tantric master Wim (Iceman) Hof was submerged in 1,550 pounds of ice outside Rubin Museum of Art on West 17th street. He managed to remain in it for 71 minutes and improved his own record. Very impressive, ice cold baths for more than 20 minutes would be lethal for untrained person. He was quite happy to get out of pile of ice cubes, looked good and healthy. Just like out of sauna.
