HANCOCK – A 36-year-old man was under water for one hour after falling through ice Friday night while snowmobiling on Nubanusit Lake, according to Maj. Kevin J. Jordan of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
Jordan said the man, whose name was not available, was taken to Monadnock Community Hospital in Peterborough.
“Because it was a cold-water incident, you attempt resuscitation for a longer period of time,” Jordan said.
Jordan said the man was among four men who went through the ice at about 5 p.m. Friday as they were preparing to leave the lake after ice fishing. The three others crawled out of the ice before rescue crews arrived.
HANCOCK, N.H.—An ice fisherman has died after a snowmobile he was riding fell through the ice on Lake Nubanusit in Hancock.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said emergency workers received a call from John Krieger of Milford about 5 p.m. who said his three companions fell through the ice while heading home on snowmobiles and one of them remained missing.
Divers found 35-year-old Willie Miles and got him out of the water about 7:20 p.m., but were not able to revive him.
Miles had told his friends that he couldn't swim.
