It takes a certain type of person to go jump in the lake in the dead of winter.However, dozens of those types braved the frigid temperatures Saturday to take part in the Lakeview Polar Bear club's ninth annual Polar Plunge.

Some say the plunge is "invigorating, " but there was also a lot of screaming at Oak Street Beach.

The event raises money for two Chicago families dealing with hard times.
