If you’ve got teenagers, chances are you’ve heard of the social media trend called Polar Plunge. Now the Fish and Game Department is warning people not to accept the dare to jump into frigid waters.  The  “Polar Plunge” is when teens are dared to jump into freezing water without life vests. They also have to dare five others to take the plunge. The waters are cold and full of winter debris. The department says the icy waters can quickly debilitate a person and there is a real danger of hypothermia.
