    Remain calm Don't remove winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead provide warmth. Turn in the water toward the direction you came from, this is most likely the strongest ice. If you have ice picks, dig the points of the picks into the ice while vigorously kicking your feet to pull yourself onto the surface by sliding forward on the ice.
