Over 100 fishermen trapped on ice slab rescued

OHIO: Over hundred fishermen trapped on a big ice slab that broke off from the shore of Lake Erie were rescued, however one person died fallen in icy water.

The news agency said that the slab of ice that broke off and floated away was about eight miles (13 km) wide. Fishermen say ice on Lake Erie has been particularly thick this winter, luring more people on than usual.

The ice started to crack when temperatures rose above freezing this weekend and strong gusts of wind pushed on the ice. It is thought the anglers had used wooden pallets to make a temporary bridge across a crack to get further out on the lake, leaving them stranded when the ice shifted and the planks fell in the water.
