Authorities: Too early for lake ice to be safe

CANNON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities are urging people to stay off the ice on local lakes, saying it’s not safe.

Cannon Township Fire Department rescue crews had to pull a man from Lake Bella Vista, southeast of Rockford, around 3 p.m. Sunday after he fell through the ice. There’s no indication he was in the water for a long time, Kent County Dispatch said, and he was in good condition.

Authorities say it’s too early to be ice skating or fishing on open water. Even though it has been cold recently, ice isn’t thick enough to be safe.
