Let this be a reminder, it is no longer safe to be out on the ice here in Central Minnesota. The Twins are playing baseball for god's sake. It's Spring and the ice is dangerous. Firefighters rescued three men clinging to a piece of ice yesterday in the Mississippi near Brainerd.

Apparently the three men were walking along the river bank yesterday afternoon, when a piece of ice broke free and carried them out into the river. Firefighters arrived on the scene and brought the men to shore.

Stay off the ice. It's dangerous this time of year. Danger: Thin Ice!
