  • Three People Rescued After Going Through Ice Near Witless Bay Line

    Search and rescue crews responded to an area near Witless Bay Line this afternoon.

    Members of the RCMP, paramedics, Rovers Search and Rescue, Central Avalon Ground Search and Rescue members arrived on scene this afternoon, following reports that three people had gone through the ice.

    Harry Blackmore of Rovers Search and Rescue says it appears the three individuals, two men and a woman, were riding an Argo when the ice gave away beneath the vehicle.

    There were no serious injuries reported in the incident.

    Mabel Tilley of Central Avalon Ground Search and Rescue reminds the public to stay off the ice. She says conditions across the island are not safe to attempt ice crossings.
