Press Release from the Rock Co. Sheriff's Office:
On 01-29-13, at 5:48PM, Rock County Deputies, along with Fire/EMS personnel from Edgerton and Milton Fire Departments, were dispatched to Dallman’s Landing in Milton Township for a water rescue. It was determined that three individuals were stranded in an Argo Conquest, 8 wheel drive amphibious machine made to go on ice and open water. The individuals were attempting to retrieve an ice shanty off of Lake Koshkonong when the vehicle became stuck between ice and open water on the lake.
Members of the Rock County Sheriff’s Office Recreational Safety Team, along with members of the Milton Fire Department, deployed in their Airboat and were able to make contact with the individuals and transport them back to Dallman’s Landing without incident. All three subjects refused EMS treatment and did not report any injuries.
Due to weather concerns, the Argo Conquest was left on the lake and will be retrieved in the morning by the Rock County Sheriff’s Office Recreational Safety Team.
