Chisago County Police had to cast a rope out to the stranded group, who sounded like they saw the funny side.

All in all it seems the local sheriff’s office were pretty happy with the rescue.

“As cops we deal with heavy stuff on a constant basis,” the Chisago Sheriff’s Office wrote on Twitter. “Domestics. Drunks. Assaults. Suicides. Drug addiction.

“So once in a while when something like this comes along it’s good to step back, enjoy it, smile, and recharge to get back into the heavy stuff again.”
