Tower, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- The occupants of a car were able to escape their car as it was sinking in Lake Vermillion.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office received two reports of a vehicle being disabled in deep water in Pike Bay between Hoodoo Point and Everett Point.

The occupants of the vehicle were able to get out of the vehicle and make it safely to shore.

The ice road has become unusable due to the warm weather.

No travel on the ice road is recommended at this time.
