Two Dead After Snowmobile Plunges Into Lake Superior Submitted: 02/22/2013
ASHLAND COUNTY - The bodies of two men who died after their snowmobile went into Lake Superior have been recovered. The two men left Bayfield to ride to Madeline Island Wednesday night at 9:30. They were reported missing 12 hours later. Not long after the call came in, searchers found the body of one man. He was next to a partially submerged snowmobile in the water near the South Channel.

The second man's body was found about three hours later. Ashland County Sheriff Mick Brennan says the victims were both in their 30s and lived on Madeline Island. The men had been on the same snowmobile. Their names are not being released because family members are still being notified. (Copyright 2013 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
