Clearly some research has to be restricted - if you want to know how long someone can survive in icy water the obvious way to find out is to put someone in icy water.
That doesn't mean to drop them in icy water and see how long it takes for them to die.

You can put them in a tank of cold water and measure their core body temperature and see how it reacts, and then remove them from the water before they die and use the information you've got to calculate how long before their body temp drops to a fatal level.

And there are also accidents where people have fallen through ice etc and been immersed in cold water for long periods. Studying these events can also provide data.
