Stranded ice fisherman refuses rescue assistance

A stranded ice angler on Green Bay near the town of Nasewaupee stayed fishing rather than take assistance to get off the ice on Friday afternoon.  Around 1 pm, the Southern Door Fire Department, Wisconsin DNR personnel, and the United States Coast Guard responded to a call by a concerned person onshore who noticed a fisherman beyond where the ice along the shore had opened up.  Southern Door Fire Chief Rich Olson says the stranded man refused help from emergency personnel who traveled by airboats to rescue him.




Olson reminds anyone who ventures on the ice at this time of year they are taking a considerable risk and should be well aware of ice conditions and wind speeds.
