DNR Warns to Check Thickness of Ice

DNR officials are warning you about walking on ice. A LaPorte man was rescued Sunday after falling through the ice on Clear Lake. LaPorte Fire Department officials found the man in water about eight feet deep.

Firefighters wearing proper cold suits went into the water and tied a line to the man. He was pulled to safety onto a floating sled.

DNR officials remind you to be cautions when walking on ice and to check the thickness before moving to a new area. Let other people know where you are and wear a life vest.
