FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Rescue workers say a Fond du Lac who was in the icy waters of Lake Winnebago for at least 30 minutes is expected to survive.  

Rescuers found 47-year-old Kerry Milam after his snowmobile fell through thin ice.  He was suffering severe hypothermia.

He was in the water for 30 minutes, according to the Ashland County Sheriff’s office.

Hudson was pronounced dead at a Duluth hospital.
