Child Rescued in Snowmobile Accident

A 13-year-old boy was rescued Sunday after his snowmobile apparently fell through thin ice, in the channel between Lake Minocqua and Lake Kawaguesaga.  

Minocqua police, Woodruff police, and the Oneida County Sheriff's Office responded to the call Sunday, February 1 at about 4 p.m.   

Officers observed the boy was in the water and unable to pull himself out due to thin ice in the immediate area.  

An ambulance transported him to Howard Young Medical Center.
