FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Rescue workers say a Fond du Lac who was in the icy waters of Lake Winnebago for at least 30 minutes is expected to survive.  

Rescuers found 47-year-old Kerry Milam after his snowmobile fell through thin ice.  He was suffering severe hypothermia.

However, a man from Bayfield wasn’t as lucky.

Thirty-four year old Jim Hudson was on a snowmobile which broke through the ice in a channel between Bayfield and Long Island Saturday afternoon.

He was in the water for 30 minutes, according to the Ashland County Sheriff’s office.

Hudson was pronounced dead at a Duluth hospital.
