In real life that may be kind of dumb, but in Hollywood you can fall through the ice, have an underwater fist fight with a bad guy, swim down to the bottom, pick up a flare gun, and shoot your way out.
Please don't give Mythbusters another stupid Hollywood thing to test out.
This one might rid us of some of the Mythbusters gang for good.

The thing with the flash-light struck me as really dumb too, just a really, really obvious thing you'd think they would have known better to not do. It's attract WAY too much attention. I'd think some moonlight and a degree of night vision would give one SOME level of sight at night without waving around a flashlight attracting attention.
On a dark night, shining a flashlight through your fingers will let through just enough light so you can see where you're stepping but won't be noticed from a distance. The scene might have worked better if they'd been doing that and accidentally dropped the flashlight.
