At around 6 p.m., Three Mile Bay Fire Department was dispatched to Long Point State Park for a reported ice rescue. Three rescue teams responded. They found four people in the parking lot, all of whom had broken through the ice.
Turns out, two people had been riding on a four-wheeler around 50 yards west of the park’s point when the machine broke through the ice. Fire Chief William Woofter said a bystander had witnessed them crash through the ice and helped get them to shore.
At around the same time, two people who were fishing were on their way in to shore around 300 yards straight off the point. It was dark and they were using head lamps to see, however they lost their bearings and walked into soft ice and broke through, Chief Woofter said. They got to shore by themselves.
Chief Woofter said emergency personnel treated the four people for cold exposure. They decided not to be transported to the hospital. All of them, Chief Woofter said, were not from the area.
