Family of 3 Saved By Local Deputies on Icy Big Bear Lake

SCOOP | Scooter

A family of 3 was rescued from Big Bear Lake on Saturday (1/18) after the family passed by ‘DANGER’ signs cautioning their soon-to-be actions.

The footage obtained by TMZ (see that here) was pretty wild to watch as the 3 were pulled to safety in dramatic fashion by the local deputies.

Although the area contains warning signs, it is very common to have someone ignore them.

Please remember: It is very dangerous to walk on or nearby an icy lake as there is no telling how thick it is. Most likely it is not thick enough to withstand a human – let alone a small group.

Here’s a chart that will give you an idea of how much ice it takes to withstand specific amounts of weight:


However, even with being able to tell how thick the ice is, it is not worth it to take the chance of walking around on it.

Please be safe out there!
