  1. Unbelievable! If that were an ice fisherman the headlines would be a lot different. Don't get me wrong I respect those guys for what they do, but when a fisherman is rescued they talk about how they risk "their own" lives to do it. Now they risk it for a black swan???????

    either way they do risk their lives every day in some way ,as do all of us? officer j. simone jumped in the cuyahoga sat.night to rescue a drunken girl that had fallen in the river.it's not a question of SHOULD I DO IT? they just do becuz thats what they do.

    guys this about sums it up----while you guys are on shore deciding on what to do, other people ACT! Its not a question on if we want to, if its safe or anything- Saving lives is in our blood from day one whether it be a fisherman, a criminal, a kid, woman, black swan or a convict. Just remember, "We have to go out, but we dont have to come back"--its part of the job, and i risk we all are proud to take

    Our core values remain focused on saving lives and protecting both people and the environment. My crew responded because their commitment to being guardians would not allow them to sit idle while this swan froze to death in the ice."

  9. Coast Guard works to rescue 3 stranded on ice in Lake Erie


    Three people were stranded Wednesday morning on an ice floe in Lake Erie near Catawba Island, north of Port Clinton, according to the Marblehead station of the U.S. Coast Guard.

    Authorities are working on rescuing the people but few details were immediately available at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
     
  10. Goodday, did you get your info from one of the local papers? I was told they told to get off the ice as it was not safe, but there was no rescue needed as they just walked back off? But the PC paper and Sandusky paper made iot sound like they were caught on an ice flow?
     
  11. Papascott,

    I generally go to ohio.co or cleveland.com while here at work.
     
  12. The 3 men were on the ice and were fine. The local authorities "thought" they should not be out there and told them to get off the ice.

    who's the busy body who called the police? yes, the police probably didn't have anything better to do...that’s a pretty sleepy place in the winter and those guy really do love to play with our taxpayer funded toys. that's not a knock at them...if someone gave me a helicopter and an air boat, i'd be using them too. kinda torn on this one. on one hand, every time we walk on the ice it's at our OWN risk...leave me alone. on the other hand, sure glad their around if i did need rescued. i think i'll join in with the last post...this is a bunch of bs.
     
  15. Going out on thin ice can cause alot of problems for yourself and the people that would have to rescue you. If the fishermen thought it was good than I say go for it this is a free country. If the police and whoever thought it was unsafe to be out there they should say something. It's a big grey area and its seems like the article was written just to provoke a response.

    OK guys this has ran it's course. Enough is enough.
    Sometimes things these things are done just for PR. Unless you have been a part of a public service job, being City, State or Federal you most likely don't understand what good these little PR things really do.
