(CNN)Ten people became stranded on floating sheets of ice in Lake Erie on Sunday, requiring rescue from the local Coast Guard.

The group became stuck on two ice floes near a waterfront park in Cleveland, Ohio, the Coast Guard's Great Lakes unit said.

Six of the people stranded were rescued with the Coast Guard's ice skiff, a narrow boat designed for ice rescues, and the other four were taken off the ice by the Cleveland Fire Department, the local Coast Guard said.

Hours before the stranding, the National Weather Service in Cleveland advised residents to stay off the ice on the lake.

But large holes started to open in Lake Erie's center, the National Weather Service said, meaning chunks of ice could break off from the shore.

The Coast Guard's Great Lakes unit didn't respond to CNN's requests for comment.
