Two Rescued from the Fox River

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WBAY) – Two fisherman broke through ice Thursday evening causing Ashwaubenon Public Safety Department along with the De Pere Fire and Rescue squad to come to action.

Someone at the Bay Harbor Circle saw the two men trying to make their way back to shore around 6:09 p.m. - but struggling to do so because of the fragile ice.

Rescuers arrived getting the men onto a rescue raft and brought them to shore. The men were fine and did not need medical attention.

Please use this as a reminder that because of recent weather there is no reason for anyone to be out on the ice.
