With wintry weather making an April comeback, many people would prefer a float down a lazy river -- but not quite like this.

Melissa Yeager watched as three men were rescued from a floating piece of ice that drifted into the middle of the Mississippi River on Tuesday.

The trio was walking along the bank of the river when the ice broke off, carrying three of four young men out into open water.

Rescuers were able to reach them using an inflatable boat and bring them to safety.
