Snowmobilers urged to heed ice

Staff

An area man is warning others, particularly snowmobilers and ATV riders, to be cautious when venturing across an access point located at the end of Whitmore Road to get to the main snowmachine trail.
The individual was walking along the interpretive bog walk trail in Alberton this morning when he went through an inch of ice at said access point.
He fell into the water, which was deep enough to go over his head.
Fortunately, he was able to get out of the water on his own.
Speaking from experience, he wants snowmobilers to be cautious.
He also is going to put a sign up to warn snowmobilers about the thin ice.
