Death on the Criox

Recommended Posts

I was wondernig if anyone has any specifics on the the man who died on the snowmobile today? I heard on the news he fell through near Hudson. Was the area a known "bad spot", or was it a freak accident? Sorry to hear about it. It's a shame, but I would like to know if there was a judgement error involved.

I watched the helicopter fly in front of my house around 6:00 in the morning, then the red lights showed up. We call it the big dam and as everyone knows it is dangerous. Not sure why they would be down in that area, unless you are fishing. Waiting for the guy South of 94 in the big hole to go down. A person must respect the River, as it takes no prisoners.

Oops, I stand corrected, it was on Lake Mallalieu at the dam. Great craps area in the spring thaw.

This happened below the dam of the Lake. On the the River. There is open water there year around. Apparently he and his group were riding around at 4:00am and he didn't see the open water, his buddies did and stopped in time. I would surmise that alcohol was at issue here. I could be wrong but I doubt it. This area is also known for it's nighttime walleye bite in the fall.

This is the part about winter sports that upsets me. It seems as if this guy went through in a known bad spot. A little precaution and knowledge of the river could have prevented this. Tradgedies like this are the same reason Minneapolis police kick me off of 6" of perfectly good ice on Lake ot the Isles every year. They hear the tragedies and assume the worst in every instance. Don't get me wrong this is a tradgedy, but I think it could have been prevented.
