The pilot of a TV helicopter that crashed in icy water was revived after his heart had stopped beating for up to 45 minutes, said doctors. Peter Peelgrane's body temperature was 71.6 degrees--normal is 98.6--when he was taken into the emergency room at Poudre Valley Hospital, spokesman Mike Vogl said. Doctors said the cold water probably saved his life by effectively refrigerating his body. "If this were a summer day and the water was warm, we wouldn't even try," Dr. Mark Guadagnoli said.
