Dozens take ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at Asia Times Square

Dozens took part in a big way in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Saturday afternoon at Asia Times Square.

To make sure everyone got really wet and cooled off in the Texas heat, the Grand Prairie Fire Department brought out its new hybrid firefighting apparatus, a quint, to hose water on all the participants.

Asia Times Square owner Matthew Loh took the challenge one step further, using hundreds of pounds of crushed, he chilled an above ground swimming pool so everyone could take a nice, chilly dip.
