Aside from the dangers to your teeth, is it dangerous to eat ice?

Was talking to a friend about eating spicy and cold things during the summer. I've heard from a few people that eating or drinking cold things, especially ice, can be hazardous to infants and the elderly, but can't find any specific reason for this.
Is there any particular medical reason, other than damaging your teeth, not to eat ice? It's just water, isn't it?
