THUNDER BAY -- Thunder Bay Fire Rescue crews removed a person from the ice in Thunder Bay Harbour.

In a release issued on Sunday evening, TBFR said they received a call reporting that a male had walked onto the ice in front of a waterfront restaurant at Prince Arthur's Landing.

An air boat was deployed and rescue crews reached the man about 450 metres from shore.

The individual was quickly removed and returned to shore, where he was taken to Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre as a precaution.

Residents are reminded that walking on harbour ice is strictly prohibited and that dangerous ice conditions still exist in the area.

No one was injured in the incident.
