Woman cold, but doing all right when snowmobile goes through thin ice on Gun Lake

A young woman riding a snowmobile with her husband on west Gun Lake went into the lake when their snowmobile went through thin ice about 12:15 p.m. Saturday, according to Wayland Fire Chief Joe Miller.

 

“Her husband made it to shore; she could not. With help from the Yankee Springs Fire Department we got her out,” Miller said. “She was cold, other than that, she was doing all right. She was standing on the snowmobile; there’s about four feet of water there, so she was just waiting for us to get her out. The ambulance took her in, just to check her out.”

 

Wayland, Yankee Springs, Orangeville and Martin fire departments responded, as did Allegan County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Wayland Area Ambulance Service.

 

The DNR has ordered Gun Lake closed to snowmobiles due to  of thin and very weak ice, according to the sheriff’s office webpage.
