The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is asking you to talk to your kids about ice safety this holiday season and avoid tragedy.  DNR Ice Safety Coordinator Nicole Biagi:

“We always want to remind parents and adults at home to keep an eye on their kids to talk to them about the ice and the danger that it poses. Kids are naturally curious about ice and if your kids are near the ice you should be near your kids.”

Biage says while ice is never 100% safe, the early stages of freezing are particularly dangerous.
