FOND DU LAC, WI (WNS) - Rescue workers say they found 47-year-old Kerry Milam of Fond du Lac in the icy waters of Lake Winnebago after his snowmobile fell through thin ice. Milam had been in the water for at least 30 minutes, but he is expected to survive. He had suffered severe hypothermia.
A man from Bayfield wasn’t as lucky. Thirty-four year old Jim Hudson was on a snowmobile which broke through the ice in a channel between Bayfield and Long Island yesterday afternoon. He was in the water for 30 minutes, according to the Ashland County Sheriff’s office. Hudson was pronounced dead at a Duluth hospital.
