CTV Winnipeg: ‘Consider all ice unsafe’: Experts warn against going near frozen water during mild winter
It’s a message water safety experts are echoing.
“Right now, with these weather conditions, the best thing is to stay off the ice. Consider all ice unsafe at this point,” said University of Manitoba thermophysiology professor Gordon Giesbrecht.
Giesbrecht emphasized that the river ice thickness needs to be tested before anyone ventures out anywhere on the water.
“And you’re looking for four inches of ice … and it needs to be blue ice,” he said.
