One person had to be evacuated and two others checked at a hospital after an ice jam flooded a campground in Coshocton, Ohio, the Coshocton Tribune reported.

It happened Friday (Feb. 21) in Coshocton County.

Coshocton County Emergency Management Agency Director Rob McMasters said he responded with Coshocton County EMS and the Walhonding Valley Fire District to a water rescue at Shady Grove Campground.

An ice jam in the Walhonding River caused high water in the campground. He said one woman was evacuated and two other people were taken by EMS to Coshocton Hospital to be checked out, but they didn’t have any major injuries.

The ice jam broke up shortly after the rescue, dropping water levels in the campground.
