IRANIAN MAN DRIES OFF AFTER SWIMMING IN FREEZING WATER FOR HIS HEALTH.
Iranian Sohbatollah Ansari lies on the snow to diy off after swimming
in a freezing pool of water in the central Iranian city of Arak, 275 km
(170 miles) southwest of Tehran, January 26, 2003. Ansari, a 55 year
old truck driver, used to catch a cold as soon as he got a chill before
friends introduced him to the Walnut Pond just outside Arak which does
not freeze in the winter despite it's minus 11 degrees Celcius
temperature. For the past year every other morning at seven in the
morning Ansari goes for a swim and feels unhealthy if he misses a swim.
