Two Dead, One Injured as Snowmobiles Fall Though Ice
Authorities say two men are dead and a third has been hospitalized after their snowmobiles fell through the ice on a western Montana lake.
The Missoulian reports the men plunged into Seeley Lake 30 miles northeast of Missoula Friday.
No names have been released. Missoula County sheriff's spokeswoman Paige Pavalone says the 45-year-old survivor was hospitalized with symptoms of hypothermia.
Five men were trying to cross the lake on snowmobiles when three fell through the ice at about 6:45 p.m. The other two made it safely to the shore.
The survivor was found at about 8 p.m. The bodies of the other two were found at about 10 p.m.
