Lacking man fell by Lake Erie ice, say Monroe County police”

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 9th District Command Center were contacted by crews at Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, Trenton, shortly after 6 p.m. requesting assistance in the search and rescue of a man on the ice in Mitchells Bay, Ontario, on Lake St. Clair.

And on the other side of the state, on Lake St Clair, Coast Guard crews rescued a Canadian man from the ice.

They said a man was on the ice and they had got an approximate location from his cell phone and crews were able respond by land, but the Royal Canadian Air Force couldn't respond due to weather.

Coast Guard Sector Detroit workers also responded to two cases where snowmobiles went through the ice, according to its Facebook page.

The ice fishermen were near Detroit Beach, fishing from Brest Bay just north of DTE in Monroe when they experienced trouble.

The crew reported the man was hypothermic.

The man was found roughly 2.5 km from shore in poor visibility with fog down to the surface.

He said the fog prevented him from seeing the shore and he got lost.

Through a helicopter's aerial review, the Coast Guard learned the group had been on three shanties atop an ice shelf that broke free, Yaw said. The helicopter rescued the two and took them to the Custer Airport, where they'll be taken to a nearby hospital for observation.
