ROSCOMMON COUNTY (WJRT) (1/3/2019) - A snowmobiler escaped a fall through the ice on Lake St. Helen in Roscommon County without serious injury Thursday morning.

The snowmobiler was riding across the lake when he broke through around 8 a.m.

The Richfield Township Department of Public Safety pulled the man out of the water and onto the ice. Airboats from the Roscommon County Sheriff's Office and Markey Township Fire Department helped get him back to shore.

Police are urging ice fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts to use extreme caution on area lakes this week. Many lakes still have open water and warm temperatures over the weekend will cause conditions to deteriorate.
