Two Ice Fisherman Plunge Into Lake St. Clair

Two ice fishermen are in good condition after they fell through the ice Thursday afternoon on Lake St. Clair near Selfridge Air Base.

 Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel tells WWJ the two crawled out of the water before emergency crews even arrived. 

Hackel says alcohol was not a factor in this incident.  He warns people that as the weather changes and becomes warmer, the ice becomes very dangerous.

    Sorry but people this stupid should not be rescued; they should be allowed to exit the gene pool. It’s been all over the news that the temperatures were going up this week.
