Man Falls Through Ice in Northern Michigan

The incident occurred yesterday (1/18) just before noon. The 65-year-old man from Traverse City had fallen through the ice on Arbutus Lake. The victim's dog Ruby was nearby but had not been trapped in the water. A witness called 911 around 11:45 am, according to Mlive.

Officer Kammeron Bennetts from the Michigan State Police was the first to arrive on the scene. Bennetts tried to approach the man, but as he started walking out onto the ice he became concerned about poor ice conditions. He then attached a rescue disc to a rope and tried to get it out to the victim.

Man's Best Friend to the Rescue

Officer Bennetts called to the dog and when she came to him, attached the rescue disc to Ruby's collar. He then instructed the man to call for his dog.

At this time, rescue personnel from Grand Traverse Metro Firefighters had arrived on the scene. Bennetts and the firefighter were able to use the rope to pull the man out of the icy water.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital and later released.
