EXCELSIOR, Minnesota -- Hundreds of people kicked off the New Year with an icy plunge into a Minnesota lake while temperatures were five degrees below zero.

Organizers of the 23rd annual Ice Dive convinced more than 700 jumpers to take part in the tradition Tuesday morning. One of those souls was an 86-year-old man.

The money raised at the event helps out a Minnesota fitness and social club.
