    Fisherman survives hour in frigid lake

    CATAWBA ISLAND, Ohio - A Niles, Mich., man who had been ice fishing on Lake Erie escaped serious injury last night after falling through the ice and spending almost an hour in the frigid water, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

    Tony D. Camp, 20, who was about 100 yards off shore near North Surfside Drive on Catawba Island, was pulled to safety by the Catawba Island Fire Department.

    He was treated at the scene and refused further treatment, the Coast Guard said.

    He was one of four fishermen walking back toward shore about 7:20 p.m. when the incident occurred.

    A person on shore saw what happened and alerted authorities. Rescue crews used the fire departmentís rescue boat to get to Mr. Camp.

    He was pulled from the water about 8:13 p.m., the Coast Guard said.

    The other three men made it to shore unhurt, the Coast Guard said.

    Default Anglers rescued from ice on bay

    Anglers rescued from ice on bay

    SUTTONS BAY - Dozens of area firefighters took part in a search for five lost ice fishermen on West Grand Traverse Bay Saturday, who were found cold but safe in the late afternoon.
    Authorities received a cell phone call shortly after 2 p.m. from a group of ice fishermen who became disoriented in the blowing snow and couldn't find their way back to shore, according to Suttons Bay-Bingham fire chief Bill Calhoun.
    "It was blowing and they couldn't see land in any direction," the chief said. "They kind of went around in circles for awhile and ended up quite a bit further out on the ice than they meant to be."
    Rescue personnel set up on shore near M-22 and Bingham Road, and a team of 8-10 searchers spread out on the ice to conduct the search, Calhoun said. They used mobile satellite equipment and kept in contact by cell phone with the group, which included three men and two teenage boys. They were found shortly before 5 p.m.
    More than 50 county firefighters responded to the scene as part of the county's multi-department search and rescue team. "Everybody worked well together," said the chief, who reported no serious injuries.
    "He who saves a single life, is said to have saved the entire world." TM
