Another Ice Rescue

Posted by wlpo on January 6, 2010

Conservation Police say alcohol played a role in an A-T-V accident yesterday in DePue.

Investigators say 30 year old Jacob Walk of DePue was driving his A-T-V on Spring Lake around 4 yesterday afternoon when he hit and soft spot and fell into the water, beneath the ice.  His passenger, 27 year old Kevin McCauley also of DePue stayed on top of the ice and was able to pull Walk out of the water before emergency officials arrived.

Walk was arrested for DUI and reckless operation of an A-T-V.  He and McCauley were both treated and released at St. Margaret’s Hospital.
