Breezy Point man learns hard lesson: Ice is never safe


January 26, 2017

BREEZY POINT, Minn. — A motorist found out the hard way Monday night that no ice is safe.

Ben Olmscheid of Breezy Point was driving his full-size Ford pickup on the ice in the channel of Halverson Bay, on the north end of Pelican Lake in Pelican Township near Breezy Point, when the ice gave way and the truck dropped into the water. Olmscheid and a passenger in the truck escaped uninjured through the sunroof of the truck. Olmscheid called his father’s friend, who was fishing on Pelican Lake at the time, to come help them.

Turner Towing of Nisswa successfully pulled the truck out of the water Tuesday afternoon.
