INDIANAPOLIS — Two teens fell into Buck Creek after 'log hopping adventure' on Monday afternoon, at Southeastway Park.

Indianapolis Fire Department crews brought the teenagers to safety after they reportedly spent 30 minutes on a pile of logs at Buck Creek, once out of water.

Neither of the teens had a cell phone, but after half an hour, a passerby saw them stranded and called authorities.

"Had they stayed on the normal path, they would've been fine," IFD's Rita Reith said.

IFD continues the hashtag #NoIceIsSafeIce on Twitter this winter season, to ward people away from ice as much as possible.
