2 Snowmobilers Rescued From Higgins Lake 1-10-2011

Two snowmobilers who crashed through the ice in Mid-Michigan have been treated for hypothermia after being pulled to safety by two Michigan State Police troopers and area residents.
Police said that Michael Roy, of Houghton Lake, and James Cooper, of Chesaning, fell through Higgins Lake about 6:15 p.m. Sunday.
Responding troopers found the men about a half-mile apart after their friends made unsuccessful attempts to rescue them.
Police say the men had been in the water about 20 minutes.
Both were transported to Grayling Mercy Hospital and were expected to make full recoveries.
