Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Marquette area search and rescue personnel are urging people to stay off of lake ice as the weather continues to warm up.

They say the rescue of one person from the water last Friday afternoon from Marquette’s Upper Harbor near the ore dock is a good reminder to use caution and stay off of the ice.

Rescuers pulled the person from the water around 2:30 Friday afternoon, and the person was treated for hypothermia at UP Health System-Marquette.

Authorities say as the weather continues to warm, the ice will become increasingly unstable and unreliable.
