Two men from Huron County had to be rescued after a section of ice they were fishing on cracked and broke off, leaving them surrounded by open water.
Jeffrey A. Stone and Travis J. Bender, both of Harbor Beach, called authorities on Saturday seeking help. The two reportedly stepped over cracks in the ice to get to an ice shanty on Saginaw Bay. Before they knew it, the cracks turned to gaps and the two were stranded.
In the video below, you'll see a vehicle known as an airboat - manned by a Huron County Sheriff's deputy and two firemen - set off on a mission to rescue the men. The rescue takes place toward the end of the video.
The Manistee News Advocate reports that the two were checked out by medics once they were back on the shore and released with no reports of any injuries.
