Video: Selfridge-Based Coast Guard Crew Rescues Stranded Angler
A rescue swimmer from a Coast Guard Air Station Detroit rescue helicopter crew is lowered down to the ice covering Saginaw Bay to rescue one of two men who had fallen through the ice March 2.
The Coast Guard has suspended a search for a man who went missing in Saginaw Bay Saturday night.
A search-and-rescue controller at Coast Guard Sector Detroit was contacted that two people were in the water after their airboat capsized five miles off Fish Point in Saginaw Bay.
An aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Detroit, at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, was launched to join a crew from Coast Guard Station Saginaw Bay and local agencies to search for the men.
One was found by the helicopter aircrew clinging to the hull of the capsized airboat, according to a release. He was hoisted aboard the aircraft and transported to Bay City Medical Center. He is reportedly in stable condition.
The search continued for the second man. Rescue crews from Huron and Tuscola County continue to search the area with dive teams and underwater cameras, according to the Coast Guard.
