NEWBERRY, Mich. (AP) — A group of people on snowmobiles have been rescued after getting stranded in a marshy area in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
State conservation officers and a snowmobile patrol for the Luce County sheriff’s office found the four snowmobilers late Friday night in the Sleeper Lake Marsh area, southwest of Sault Ste. Marie, WPBN-TV reported Saturday.
Rescuers battled deep snow and poor visibility and relied on GPS to reach the group, the sheriff’s office said.
One of the snowmobilers was treated for possible hypothermia.
