A 30-year-old man from Break Creek was driving around Shawano Lake over the weekend and ended up driving through the ice. It happened near Stark Road by the channel. Everyone was able to make it safely out of the car, as it was only a couple feet deep at the spot they went in.
Also on Saturday, a snowmobile went into the channel near the Lighthouse. The DNR was notified and will be updated about any possible fuel or oil leakage into the water.
The Shawano County Sheriff’s Office posted some preventable measures on their Facebook page to keep this from happening to you.
