Hitchcock area man drowns while ice fishing
WILLOW LAKE, S.D. (Watertown Radio) - A man has drowned while ice fishing on a lake in Clark County.
The Clark County Sheriff Robert McGraw says authorities were called to Dry Lake #2 about four miles north of Willow Lake, S.D., Wednesday morning for a report of a man who didn’t return home after fishing Tuesday night.
McGraw says there was a large area of open water on the north end of the lake, where debris was found floating, and that’s where divers concentrated their search.
A remote camera was used to find the 60-year-old’s snowmobile. His body was recovered around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
McGraw says it appears the man became disoriented in foggy conditions and drove into the water.
