MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 16-year-old boy had to be rescued Saturday, after he fell through thin ice while on a go kart.

The Chisago County Dispatch received a call around 5:40 p.m. Saturday that someone fell through the ice on South Lindstrom Lake. Deputies, along with the Lakes Area Police Department and Lindstrom Fire Department responded to the scene.
