Group of snowmobilers rescued from marshy area in UP


A group of people on snowmobiles have been rescued after getting stranded in a marshy area in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

State conservation officers and a snowmobile patrol for the Luce County sheriff’s office found the four snowmobilers late Friday night in the Sleeper Lake Marsh area, southwest of Sault Ste. Marie.

The sheriff's office said rescuers battled deep snow and poor visibility and relied on GPS to reach the group.

One of the snowmobilers was treated for possible hypothermia.
