Rescue team saved 27 people Grounding on a large floating ice Off Point Comfort in Green Bay, according to Wisconsin police.
According to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, the ice collapsed from the coastline, carrying dozens of them over the waters of the frigid bay.
Police, firefighters and the Coast Guard responded on Saturday morning, January 8, according to the sheriff’s office.
“Yesterday’s barge traffic seems to have weakened the ice along the eastern shore of the bay, so we need to avoid it for all entertainment purposes,” BCSO wrote in a Facebook post, telling others. I warned you not to approach the area.
One man I was caught in the drift ice, Shane Nelson was fishing with friends when the loud noise caught their attention, WLUK reported.
“It sounded like almost someone shot a gun,” Nelson told the television station. “We found it interesting, got out of Shanti, and when we looked, people were screaming on the ice we were separating.”
Nelson and other drifters were rescued within hours and were taken to return the shipment to the shore at one time, police told WLUK.
No injuries have been reported.
