Two men are rescued after their snowmobiles fall through the water in Milton Township.
It happened Saturday night at around 10:50 in the Mallwood subdivision.
According to the Rock County Sheriff's Department, 46-year-old August Saccoccio of Oxford, North Carolina and his 16-year-old son, Salvatore, of Edgerton, were snowmobiling in an area near East Road 9.
A nearby homeowner saw the snowmobiles go into the water and heard the drivers yelling for help.
Rescue crews arrived and pulled the father and son to safety about 50-minutes later. They were taken to a local hospital and treated for hypothermia.
Operator inexperience and unfamiliarity with the area are contributing factors.
