Sandusky Ice Reports

No ice-covered water is "safe." Just slipping and falling on ice can cause serious injury or even death. Ice-covered water poses a significant risk of injury or death.  If the ice is too thin or too weak, you can fall through the ice and die from drowning, hypothermia, cardiac arrest, or stroke.

Your physical condition strongly effects your chance of survival if you fall through the ice.
