GARDNER, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have issued ice safety warnings after two people went through the ice in the bay of Green Bay, a week after nearly three-dozen people were rescued from a floating chunk of ice that broke away from shore.

The latest incident happened Saturday afternoon when two men were riding all-terrain vehicles back to shore after ice fishing and crashed through thin ice near the town Gardner.

A 58-year-old Kewaunee man, who went through the ice first, was flown by helicopter to a Green Bay hospital for treatment of what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

A  second man who plunged through the ice when he tried to rescue the first man was treated at the scene and released.
