VIDEO: Locals take plunge for good cause

BENSALEM, Pa. (WPVI) -- The cold weather didn't stop hundreds of people Saturday morning from putting on their swimsuits and jumping into the Delaware River.

The chilly dive was part of the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania's 8th annual Polar Plunge.

More than 600 intrepid souls jumped into the frigid water in support of nearly 20,000 Special Olympians.

Each of the swimmers was asked to raise a minimum of $50.
