Minnesota DNR Issues Warning After Boy Falls Through Ice
It may be cold outside, but the DNR says you need to stay off icy lakes because it’s not safe to walk on yet.
The DNR put out the warning after an 8-year-old boy fell through thin ice in Oak Grove Sunday afternoon. He spent about 15 minutes in the water before his family could pull him out. The Associated Press reports the boy was treated for hypothermia, but will fully recover.
The DNR recommends you wait for four inches of ice to form before walking on a pond or lake.
