Wayland Fire Department got a call for help Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. similar to one a week ago.
A snowmobile had gone through the ice on west Gun Lake, the second such incident in a week. Friday, the snowmobile was still in the water, but the rider managed to get himself out and was walking to shore when the fire department arrived, Chief Joe Miller said.
“He’s doing okay. Yankee Springs Fire Department checked him out while they waited for an ambulance,” Miller said. “He plans on getting the snowmobile out tomorrow.”
He noted the man went through the ice at almost the same place a woman and her husband went into the lake last week. The man made it to shore, his wife waited for rescue standing on the partially submerged machine.
Miller advises snowmobile riders to stay off Gun Lake.
