Health Alert: Black Ice

CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- Some of this ice you can see so it's easier to avoid but it's the black ice over the next few days that emergency medicine providers have a warning about.

By early Tuesday morning I had already had reports of 20 plus people in just one emergency room at Bethesda North Hospital.  We stopped out at Arlington Memorial Gardens to tell you more about what they want us to know.

They said most of the injuries were broken wrists and ankles and back injuries.  Since our local 12 Meteorology team says this could stick around for a few days experts are urging extra caution.  Most people try to break a fall with a wrist or an elbow and that's where there's really been the most injuries.

There's no right way to fall so they are asking us to avoid the fall at all.  It can happen so quickly so right now they reminding us rubber boots and caution can help.

You really need to step lightly!
