In Lake Michigan, 27 people were rescued from a floating ice chunk

Police saved 27 people from a floating ice block that broke away from the coast in Green Bay Bay in eastern Wisconsin, according to the sheriff's office.

According to the Brown County Sheriff's Office, no people were wounded in the event that occurred Saturday morning north of Green Bay, in the arm of Lake Michigan. At the time of the tragedy, many of the 27 persons evacuated were ice fishing.

During the recovery, the chunk of ice floated roughly three-quarters of a mile that was about a mile from the shoreline by the time everyone was rescued. The stranded passengers were on the isolated ice shove for around 90 minutes, according to authorities.
