Two Machines Go Through the Ice

A man and woman traveling on a snow machine broke through the ice and had their machine sink around 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24., on Wreck Lake north of Kenora.

On Dec. 26, a male on a snow machine went through the ice in the Mud Portage area of Lake of the Woods. OPP and Lake of the Woods Search and Rescue were notified and found him three hours later.


This year’s unusually mild winter has created unstable ice conditions on lakes, rivers and other waterways in the area. The Ontario Provincial Police are once again warning of the dangers of thin ice.
