More than 60 ice fishermen in Wisconsin had to be rescued before a severe winter storm struck.

This was just outside of Green Bay.

Huge blocks of ice broke off from shore, traveling more than a thousand feet in rough water.

The Coast Guard, along with local and state agencies, were able to pull all 66 people to safety in a four hour rescue effort.
