Fowlerville Man Found Dead After Falling Through Ice On Saginaw Bay
February 5, 2018
A Livingston County man is one of two fishermen that authorities say were found dead after they fell through ice on Saginaw Bay
The Huron County sheriff's department says it responded Sunday after a person reported that he'd received a voicemail from a friend who reported falling through the ice off of Fairhaven Township. The department says an ATV and ice fishing shanty were found in water roughly 4 feet deep.
The sheriff's department says the bodies of 73-year-old Dennis Shaw of Fowlerville and 69-year-old Willard Slider of Caro were found nearby. The department says the call for help appears to have been made about 9:30 a.m. Sunday, but the voicemail didn't arrive until about 2:30 p.m.
Authorities are urging people to use caution on unpredictable ice. (JK)
