Two Teens Rescued from Green Bay Ice Floe

STURGEON BAY, Wisc. – The U.S. Coast Guard rescued two male teenagers from a drifting ice floe on Thursday in Green Bay.

The two boys were ice fishing when the ice they were on seperated from land. They did not realize they were stranded in the Bay until they tried to return home on their snowmobile.

A Coast Guard Station Sturgeon Bay 20-foot rescue airboat and a Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City HH-65 Dolphin helicopter were deployed, along with a helicopter from the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.

The Station Sturgeon Bay airboat crew pulled the two boys off and took them back to Vocks Landing in Green Bay.
