The ice has been hit or miss so far this season. With cold temperatures followed by mild temperatures, the ice is a little unpredictable. Unfortunately three snowmobilers fell through the ice while crossing the lake near the Seeley Lake Campground at 6:45p on Friday the 26th. One of the snowmobilers was able to escape the ice, but two did not.
According to KPAX
The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office says it first got a call from one of the party around 6:45 p.m. with reports the party of five sledders had got into trouble while crossing the ice near Seeley Lake Campground. One man was pulled from the water when his companion was able to crawl across the ice on his stomach, getting his friend to safety. That man was taken to the hospital in Missoula to be treated for hypothermia.
However, no one could locate the remaining two members of the party at water level.
Search and Rescue teams called for help from the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office, which was able to overfly the lake by helicopter. Shortly after 10 p.m. MCSO reported the chopper had spotted the pair, allowing rescuers to recover their bodies, confirming they had died after falling through the ice.
