Three Maranacook High School cross-country skiers fell through the ice on Maranacook lake in Readfield while out on a run.
The group of five skiers had been out running, and decided to take a shortcut across the lake. Three of the five went through the ice about 100 to 150 feet from shore. They managed to pull themselves out.
The students did not need medical treatment, but were still taken by ambulance back to the high school.
Wardens continue to warn Mainers not to venture out on the ice right now…our warmer than normal temperatures this winter haven’t given the water enough time to safely freeze up.
