MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An ice fisherman is in critical condition after falling through thin ice.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. Friday on Little Rock Lake in Benton County.

Rescuers pulled 30-year-old Joshua Johnson of Sartell from the water. They say the ice was about 1-and-a-half to 2 inches thick.

Authorities warn that any ice that has formed on the lakes is not safe for any travel right now.
