Bulldozer sinks preparing for snowmobile race Submitted: 02/10/2014
Chippewa County - A bulldozer being used to prepare for a snowmobile race in Chippewa County now
sits at the bottom of a lake.

Sheriff's officials say Kirk Brown of Brown Excavation was using the bulldozer
to get a race track ready for Saturday's Pro Vintage race.

The 10-ton bulldozer broke through the ice in 40 feet of water several hundred
yards from shore.

Brown jumped to safety just before the bulldozer sank.

The DNR will work with Brown to recover the bulldozer.
