GIBSONBURG, Ohio (WNWO) -- SCUBA divers like Jennifer Idol are driving cross country to experience the serene environment under the ice of northwest Ohio.

Idol is an underwater photographer from Austin, Texas, who joined a group of local divers in flooded White Star Quarry near Gibsonburg.

Rod Althaus, the owner of Port Clinton's New Wave Dive Center hosted the expedition of about a dozen divers cutting triangular holes in the eight-inch-thick ice.

"You need the proper gear, the proper regulators, dry suits and training," Althous says.
