Four people rescued from a frozen lake in Englewood will be ticketed.

The three juveniles and an adult walked out on the lake at Centennial Park Friday morning.

A police officer spotted them and told them to go to an island and wait for help.

The Denver Fire Department's dive team was called out. They used a boat to get to the island and rescue the group.

Denver Fire says all four people are OK and thankfully the ice didn't break.

Police said the group will be ticketed for walking on the frozen lake, which had a sign that warned them to keep off the ice.

One teenager died and two others were injured Thursday when they fell through the ice of a partially frozen lake in Parker.
