A Coast Guard helicopter crew rescued a man early this morning after he became stranded on an ice floe adrift in Lake Erie.
Just before 2:30 a.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Detroit overheard radio communications over the marine radio about a person stranded.
The Frenchtown, Michigan Fire Department reported being en route to Sterling State Park to respond to an all-terrain vehicle rider adrift on an ice floe.
The stranded man used his cell phone to report that he was wearing a full exposure suit but did not have any other survival equipment with him other than his phone and GPS.
The air crew arrived to find the ice floe completely surrounded by open water.
The air crew hoisted the man aboard the helicopter and transported him to Custer Airport in Monroe, Michigan where he was met by awaiting emergency responders.
The man's name hasn't been released.
Increasing temperatures means potentially weakening ice. The Coast Guard is using this incident to remind people to remember the acronym I.C.E. before venturing out on or near ice-covered waterways.
Information — Know the weather and ice
conditions, know and tell a trusted person on shore where you are going, and
know how to call for help. Never go out alone.
Clothing — Wear the proper clothing to
prevent hypothermia. Wear a waterproof exposure suit and a life jacket.
Equipment — Carry the proper equipment. Carry
two ice picks or screwdrivers, which will help anyone out of the ice
if the should fall through. They are much more effective than bare hands. Carry a
whistle or noise maker to alert people that you are in distress. Carry a
cellular phone or marine band radio in a waterproof container so that you can
call for help if you come across trouble.
