Thirty-four people in Green Bay – out for a morning of ice fishing on Saturday – had to be rescued after a huge chunk of ice split from the main shoreline.
It happened along the east shore of Green Bay, which leads out to Lake Michigan.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office said people were yelling “the ice is separating!”
It took authorities aboard ice rescue boats nearly an hour a half and several trips to rescue the more than two dozen fisherman who were stranded.

No injuries were reported.
