FENTON TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (2/26/2018) - Rescue workers pulled two men out of icy Silver Lake in Fenton Township on Sunday.
The men fell through the ice near an island offshore from the end of Silvershore Drive around 6:30 p.m. A responding Genesee County sheriff deputy also fell in while trying to rescue them.
The Fenton Township Fire Department sent a boat and special cold water gear to the scene. Firefighters were able to pull all three people from the water before any sustained serious injury.
One firefighter suffered a minor injury during the rescue, however. Everyone involved is expect to fully recover.
Emergency crews are urging people to use extreme caution as ice on area lakes and rivers is melting and breaking apart.
