A man from northeast China's Heilongjiang Province has set a new world record for the longest time buried in snow. Jin Songhao remained completely covered for 46 minutes.

Jin is also the Guinness record holder for the longest ice bath. For the snow burial, the stage was set in Arxan, Inner Mongolia, where the temperature was below 36 degrees Celsius. The cold was very tough for the cheering crowd, but Jin Songhao wore only swimming trunks. But he persevered to the end to emerge victorious.
