The weather conditions in the Bering Sea often cause hypothermia, but that's nothing compared to everything else that can happen.
Hypothermia occurs when a person is exposed to a combination of low temperatures, wind, and moisture at the same time.
Hypothermia from submersion in very cold water requires special handling to protect the heart.
Well, believe it or not the same goes for leaving a dog in a car in very cold weather, except you have hypothermia to contend with instead of heat prostration.
Prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can also produce hypothermia (lowered body temperature), which can be life threatening.

D: Dry; Dry clothing is necessary as damp clothing will cool the skin too quickly bringing on frostbite or hypothermia.
Anyone who is standing in water that is colder than 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) may develop hypothermia.
Outcomes include an increased risk of long-term neurologic and behavioral handicaps, possible intrauterine demise, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), and low body temperature (hypothermia).
These pollutants may cause hypothermia, dehydration, or internal damage.
