Emergency Crews Recommend Staying Off The Ice

Emergency crews remind you to stay off lakes and rivers this time of year as the ice thickness is unpredictable.

This reminder comes after Kingston Fire crews rescued a man who fell through the ice in the Medley Court/Belle Island area around 11:00 am Saturday.

There were reports that more than one person fell through, prompting a longer search effort. One firefighter picked up minor injuries during the rescue effort.

However, it was later confirmed that just one person went into the water.
