Coast Guard Warns of Unsafe Ice

And as the weather continues to warm up, a warning from the US Coast Guard about the ice that has already began to melt.

While these men were brave enough to venture out on the ice, the Coast Guard says with the recent rainfall and rising temperatures, the thick ice is long gone.

They say even if something looks safe to walk on, it's not worth taking the chance.

“The ice has become unstable and we recommend it's about time to stay off the ice and err on the side of caution, just sit back and look forward to spring,” says Coast Guard rescue swimmer, Steven Fischer.

If you do need to go out on the ice, say to bring in your shanty, they recommend bringing someone with you, and letting others know you'll be venturing out.
