Another man has gone through the ice

Be careful out there guys!


BISMARCK --- A 70-year-old man is dead after falling through the ice into a canal near a boat landing on Hoge Island on the Missouri River about seven miles northwest of Bismarck.

The Burleigh County Sheriff's Department said they were called for a welfare check on the man earlier in the day on Thursday, Dec. 7.

When deputies responded they found a break in the ice near the boat landing.  A water rescue team was then activated. They were able to find and remove the man's body from the water.

The Burleigh County Rural Fire Department and Burleigh County Sheriff's Department both responded.

The man’s  name has not been released.
