WINOOSKI, Vt. - Two men are back on dry land after falling through thin ice Sunday night.

The men were crossing the Winooski River between Burlington and Winooski Sunday evening. At some point, the thin ice cracked and left the men floating down the river. Fortunately they managed to reach an island where a Colchester Technical Rescue boat later picked them up.

They appeared to be fine, but chilly, when rescued.

Burlington Fire reminds people to stay off the ice.
