SHAKOPEE -- Shakopee firefighters rescued a man who was clinging to a ledge of ice in the Minnesota River Sunday afternoon.
Fire Chief Rick Komen says they were called to Memorial Park after a man had fallen through the ice into the water.
Komen says the man was holding onto an ice ledge when firefighters got there. They put on their dry suits, tied ropes around themselves to make sure they were safe and swam out to him.
Crews then pulled the man to shore and he was airlifted to St. Francis Hospital. Komen says the man, who was about 35 to 40 years old, was conscious but not very alert after he was pulled from the water.
His condition hasn't been released.
I just wonder if it was anyone we know?
I don't believe in superstars
Organic food and foreign cars
I don't believe the price of gold
The certainty of growing old
That right is right and left is wrong
That north and south can't get along
