A Marquette area man is recovering Friday morning after falling through the ice on Lake Superior at Marquette's Lower Harbor.
The victim has been identified as 21-year-old John Slagle of Harvey. Firefighters were called to the area near Thill's Fish House at 12:20 a.m. for a report of a man who had fallen through the ice.
Marquette City Fire Chief Tom Belt says Slagle was about 60 feet out on the ice when he fell through. Two firefighters put on cold water rescue gear and swam out to the victim.
Slagle was taken to Marquette General Hospital for treatment of hypothermia.
