5 ice fishermen rescued from Lake Erie ice floe

LOCAL     6 rescued from Lake Erie Sunday     
       6 people were stranded off shore from the Sturgeon Point Marina Sunday afternoon

It happened early Thursday morning near the Twin Cities Bicentennial Bridge in St. Joseph.

The Coast Guard was first alerted to the dog being on the ice off the East 72nd Street marina in Cleveland around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, January 14.

As crews got closer to the dog, they noticed it running toward land and it's now believed the dog is off the ice.

Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, Monroe County Sheriff's Office and local agencies rescued five ice fishermen Friday from Lake Erie near Sterling State Park, the Coast Guard said.

"It would have been hard to find them if they didn't have flashlights; it enabled them to signal for help and, ultimately, for us to locate them", said Air Station Detroit Aircraft Commander, Lt. Adam Morehouse.

They could barely see him through the fog, even with night vision goggles, but they were able to hoist him on board.

The Coast Guard issued a reminder of the importance of ice fishers having reliable communication and signaling gear.

He was said to be hypothermic. Ice fishers should also make sure to tell someone where they're going and when they'll be back.

The Coast Guard wants to remind everyone that they need to remain vigilant and cautious around bodies of water, as ice conditions can be very unpredictable.
