On Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong's tallest mountain, it was 2 degrees celsius early in the morning, and temperatures kept on dropping to about six degrees below freezing. The fire service had to come to the rescue to treat more than 65 frost chasers and race participants - a 100-KM ultra trail race took place during the night - with symptoms of hypothermia. 45 runners were sent to hospital but many were released by the end of the day. Meanwhile many people came to enjoy and experience the ice cold.
