U.S. Coast Guard, Cleveland fire department rescue people stranded on ice floes off Edgewater Park
CLEVELAND, Ohio — About 10 people were rescued Sunday afternoon after they became stranded on the ice off of Edgewater Park, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard’s Great Lakes unit sent a tweet about 3:40 p.m. Sunday saying the people were stranded on two separate ice floes on Lake Erie. The ice rescue team from Station Cleveland Harbor, as well as the Cleveland fire department, were able to bring those stranded safely ashore within about one hour.
Of those 10 people stuck on the ice, seven were adults and three were children, a Coast Guard spokesman said Sunday. Six of those people were rescued by a Coast Guard ice skiff, while the others were taken to shore by a Cleveland Fire Department rescue team.
