There were some tense moments out on Lake Superior Tuesday after authorities performed an ice rescue.

Two adults and two children from Superior walked out toward Uncle Harvey’s Mausoleum when one of the adults broke through the ice, according to St. Louis County Sheriff’s officials.

The victim was able to climb onto the structure and wait for rescue crews.

Authorities said the victim was wet, cold and scared, but is expected to be okay.

With the late winter warm up and spring approaching, authorities say current conditions are too dangerous to be out on the ice.

“Turning dark, they’re honeycombing, they’re not safe to walk on, there’s a lot of movement in the ice now. It’s not a good time to be out on the ice on the big lake,” said acting assistant chief Mark Herman with the Duluth Fire Department.

Duluth police, Duluth fire, U.S. Coast Guard, Gold Cross Ambulance and the St. Louis County Rescue Squad all responded to the call.
