34 People Rescued From Floating Ice Chunk In Green Bay
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office said no injuries were reported in the incident that happened Saturday morning north of Green Bay, in the arm that’s part of Lake Michigan.
Many of the people were believed to be ice fishing at the time of the incident.
The sheriff’s office said the chunk of ice floated about three-quarters of a mile during the rescue and was about a mile from the shoreline by the time everyone was brought to solid ground.
Authorities say a barge traveling through the bay may have caused the ice chunk to break off the shoreline.
