10 rescued after Getting stranded on ice floes at Lake Erie, Coast Guard says

Seven adults and 3 kids became stranded on the ice floes, which had spanned almost a mile off shore from Edgewater Park in Cleveland, the Coast Guard said.

The Coast Guard dispatched an ice rescue team in Addition to a helicopter for air service, operating in tandem with the Cleveland Metroparks Police Department and the Cleveland Division of Fire.

Six people were spared from the ice rescue team while the other four were rescued by firefighters, according to the Coast Guard.

All 10 people were taken over to paramedics anticipating on site. There were no injuries reported, the Coast Guard stated.

The National Weather Service's prediction office at Cleveland issued an advisory on Saturday night regarding the"dangerous ice conditions" on Lake Erie, cautioning of large openings in the ice which developed at the middle of the lake as well as the potential for ice to drift away from shore increasing through Monday as winds pick up.

"It is advised to keep off the ice on Lake Erie as regions of ice could break off from the shore," the bureau said. "If you're on the ice and it breaks away from shore, you will wind up stranded."
