Chetek, WI Dangerous Thin Ice Vehicle Recovery – 12/27/2019

A side by side went through Pokegama Lake right before Christmas. No one was injured. This video package shows the recovery of the side by side. One clip shows how the ice is layered this year. I never seen the ice layered like this in all my years on the ice. The ice on area lakes aren’t safe.
