HURON COUNTY (WJRT) -

(12/26/12) - A pilot has been rescued after an accident with his experimental plane in Huron County.

Sheriff Kelly Hanson tells us Rodney Brocke, a 49-year-old pilot from Bay City, was on Maisou Island in Saginaw Bay Tuesday for target shooting.

Once there, he was doing some practice landings with his experimental Kitfox. That's when the landing gear broke through the ice, ripping off a wheel.

The plane flipped over, but Brocke was able to free himself and call his wife for help.
