When the article came out regarding the Third Lake incident, it reminded me of an additional article in the same paper that talked about the “type” of ice that was safe, not just the thickness. The article mentioned how thawing and refreezing ice does NOT have the same strength as original ice.
As I walked over the pedestrian bridge it was quite obvious that there were melting areas that these men were surrounded by. I could even hear the hollow sound as several walked around checking their lines. Hopefully all six of them make it back home safe.
I was glad I wasn’t taking photos of another life-saving situation.
