Authorities in the eastern Arizona community of Show Low said two teenagers spent two frigid hours hanging onto a dead tree after ice on a lake began to crack.

Show Low Fire District Capt. Brent Mix said they were rescued late Wednesday.

A third teen stayed on the snow-covered bank of Fool Hollow Lake and called for help when the other two got stuck.

The rescued juveniles were taken to a hospital for treatment of what Mix described as mild hypothermia.

A total of 25 fire and other emergency personnel from several agencies responded.
