It was a daring mistake that two Arizona teens might never forget. On Wednesday, they ventured out onto a frozen lake in Show Low, Ariz. -- then the ice cracked beneath them.
"Luckily, they were right by a standing dead tree," Lakeside Fire District Capt. Dennis Stern told NBC News on Thursday.
For what officials believe was at least two hours, the teens clung onto the tree in the middle of the frozen lake.
Authorities say a third teen was on the bank of Fool Hollow Lake, The Associated Press reported. That individual called their parents, who in turn, contacted authorities, Stern said. After the call came in around 4:45 p.m. local time, the Show Low Fire Department worked with the Lakeside Fire District's ice rescue team to recover the stranded teens.
