Man rescued after falling through ice

Rescue personnel responded to the entrance to the Dettah Ice Road of Yellowknife Bay Friday afternoon after a report of a person had fallen through the ice into the freezing water near the houseboats at Jolliffe Island.

Officials confirmed a man was pulled from the water by people nearby before responders arrived. The man wasn't seriously injured. Police advise people to stay off the thin ice that's forming on bodies of water around the city.
