By Lindsay Advocate

Members of the Kawartha Lakes Police Service are credited with saving a woman from the icy waters of the Scugog River in Lindsay on Tuesday.

Kawartha Lakes Police Service received a call for a woman on the Scugog River’s ice in the north end of Lindsay at 1:50 pm on Monday and responded immediately.

She had been out walking with friends when she became stranded on the thin ice.

When officers arrived on the scene, the woman had fallen through the ice but had managed to keep herself above the surface.

Officers quickly managed to get a rope to the woman and were able to pull her out of the water and to shore, with the assistance of Kawartha Lakes Fire and Rescue. She was transported to hospital by Kawartha Lakes EMS where she was treated and released.

Police are reminding the public that conditions remain unsafe and that they should stay off of the ice. Fluctuating temperatures and strong currents are not conducive to producing ice conditions that are safe.
