In spring, Minnesotans insist they can walk on water

There is no mandatory standard testing for science in Minnesota, and it shows around this time of the year when people insist on ice fishing despite warm temperatures, ignoring not only science, but warnings not to go ice fishing at this time of the year.

What’s wrong with you, Minnesota?

The latest incident happened at Foster-Arend Park in Rochester, according to the Rochester Post Bulletin.

And adult and three kids went ice fishing on Saturday and had to be rescued when they fell through.

They weren’t the only ones out there, the paper says. After the incident, which happened as temperatures approached 60, police cleared the ice.

Last week the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources issued thin ice warning across the state.

Twenty-eight percent of those who died falling through the ice in Minnesota between 2009 and 2014 were walking on it at the time, according to the DNR.
