Teens rescued from Lake Waconia after ‘slush patch’ snags vehicle

WACONIA, MN — Two teenagers were rescued from Lake Waconia last week after the vehicle they were in got “stuck in a slush patch.”

According to the Carver County Sheriff’s Office first responders were called to the lake near the eastern shore of Coney Island Jan. 14 at about 9:37 p.m. on a report of a vehicle sinking into the lake.

The Waconia Fire Department used an UTV to get the two 18-year-old women off the lake, but their vehicle — which actually hadn’t sunk through the frozen lake — wasn’t removed by deputies or firefighters.

The owner is responsible for retrieving it, the sheriff’s office said.
