Man, woman rescued from ice at Eagle Creek

INDIANAPOLIS - A man and woman were recovering after they were rescued from the ice at Eagle Creek Reservoir on Tuesday evening.

Rescuers were called to an area near the bird sanctuary in the park around 7 p.m. when the pair was spotted on the ice, hundreds of feet away from land.

One of the people fell into the water when the ice got too thin and the other person tried to run for help but got stuck, officials said.

Both the man and woman were last listed as stable.

Fire crews said it is an important lesson for anyone wanting to spend time outdoors in the changing weather.
