TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Coast Guard officials in Ohio say they will examine a Lake Erie bay and monitor for pollution after crews rescued two people who fell through the ice with their snowmobiles over the weekend.

The U.S. Coast Guard Ninth District in Cleveland says two people were stranded early Sunday morning in Maumee Bay near the Michigan border after falling through the ice on their snowmobiles. Two others who had fallen through the ice were able to climb to shore to get help.

An ice rescue crew from the Coast Guard’s Toledo station guided the two stranded individuals to shore.

All four people declined medical attention. Their names weren’t released.

Officials say commercial salvage crews will remove the snowmobiles from the bay.
