Fishermen Rescued After Ice Shelf Separates From Shore In Green Bay​

"GREEN BAY, Wis. (WCCO) — Ice fishermen in Wisconsin had a rare kind of scare this weekend when a large ice shelf broke off and drifted out into the water.
Darin Grieger and his buddies were part of the group of 34 people that had to be rescued by authorities in Green Bay. Grieger says soon after they got set up Saturday morning, he heard a loud crack. An hour and a half later, they noticed the ground start to move.
“This gap started to grow and grow and grow,” Grieger said. “Within probably 30 seconds it was 10 feet where you’re not going to get across. [The ice shelf] was huge. So like half of the bay broke off.”
The ice ultimately traveled three quarters of a mile, getting about a mile out from shore by the time everyone was rescued. The Brown County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Coast Guard used airboats during the rescue."

This situation is not unusual, seems to happen a few times each winter season, personally I like smaller lakes so not much chance of this event happening.

Seems that this was caused by a barge. Navigable waters like rivers and the great lakes do have the extra hazard of thru-traffic :eek
